AN EIGHT-year-old Bri­tish girl was found safe and sound in a restau­rant in Al­bir yes­ter­day (Thurs­day) morn­ing fol­low­ing a fre­netic all-night search by six Guardia Civil pa­trols.

The child was hav­ing din­ner with her mother and brother in a restau­rant, when she went miss­ing shortly af­ter mid­night.

Ac­cord­ing to the Guardia Civil, she wan­dered off and hid in a cor­ner of a nearby restau­rant, where she fell asleep, and no­body no­ticed she was there.

When she woke, she re­alised the restau­rant was closed.

How­ever, the young­ster found a re­mote and turned on the tele­vi­sion.

Two Guardia Civil of­fi­cers par­tic­i­pat­ing in the search no­ticed the set was on, even though the restau­rant was closed.

They de­cided to en­ter the restau­rant, where they found the girl watch­ing the TV.
