LONDON (AP) - Police say a 15-year-old British schoolgirl who sparked an international search when she went missing along with her math teacher has been found safe and well in France.

The Sussex Police force says Megan Stammers was located Friday along with 30-year-old Jeremy Forrest, a teacher at her school.

Police say Forrest has been arrested on suspicion of child abduction and Stammers has been taken into protection.

Stammers failed to show up for school on Sept. 21, and authorities said she had been spotted on a ferry to France with Forrest.

The parents of both Stammers and Forrest made emotional televised pleas for them to get in touch. Police said the two were located as a result of media coverage of the case in France.
