A 13-year-old girl who disappeared in The Hague on Wednesday, was found in good health, the police said on Twitter at around 1:00 p.m. on Friday. "We want to thank everyone for thinking and searching along", the police said.

Goiia's father is delighted and also wants to thank everyone who helped look for his daughter. "Thank you, thank you", he said to RTL Nieuws. "I was just called by a police officer, I am so happy, I am so relieved."

The past two days were a nightmare, the father said. "Really worried. I didn't eat, I didn't sleep." He does not yet know where his daughter was or how she was found. "The police have not yet told us that. But the point is that she is healthy and that I can see and hold her in my arms again soon."
