LONDON (September 24, 2012)--The parents of a missing British schoolgirl who’s believed to have run away with her teacher have issued a plea for her to come home.
Authorities believe Megan Stammers, 15, is in France with Jeremy Forrest, 30, a math teacher at the Bishop Bell C of E School in East Sussex.
The girl’s mother, Danielle Wilson, issued an emotional appeal Monday in a televised press conference with police, in which she begged her daughter to get in touch.
Police believe the teen left of her own accord, but say they need to hear that she is safe, urging Forrest to make contact with authorities.
The alarm was raised Friday after Megan failed to turn up for school.
Police believe she and Forrest took a ferry to France.
