Missing Teen Erika Kacicova Found 'Safe'
Missing 13-year-old Erika Kacicova has been found "safe and well" in Bradford city centre, police say.
Officers said the teenager was discovered alone and that a total of five people - four men and one woman - were being held in connection with her disappearance.
Erika is in the care of police in Bradford and her family have been informed of developments.
Detective Inspector Helen Tate, of South Yorkshire Police, said she did not know if Erika had been held against her will.
"It's fantastic news that we now have Erika, safe and well and a successful conclusion to the search for Erika," she said.
"Our primary aim now is to concentrate on Erika's well-being and begin to piece together her movements since she left home last Monday.
"We are working with local authority and partner agencies for the appropriate support for Erika and to assist with the investigation.
"I have personally been overwhelmed by the way the public and the media have responded to our appeals and I am extremely grateful for their help and support throughout this investigation."
She told a news conference that work would now continue in an effort to establish what had happened to the teenager.
A statement issued by police said the discovery of Erika came after they had spoken to various people throughout the day who they believe had been in contact with her over the last couple of days.
Erika was last seen leaving her home in the Darnall area of Sheffield at around 4pm on August 5.
Her father told Sky News he had not been eating or sleeping since his daughter went missing.
Police earlier arrested a 37-year-old man on suspicion of child abduction, while a 22-year-old man from Bradford also held on suspicion of child abduction was released on police bail on Sunday.
