Missing Wexford Teenager Found In Sligo

Gardaí have said that missing 15-year-old Sait Canbullu has been found "safe and well" in Sligo.

A Child Rescue Ireland alert was issued on Saturday after the teenager was reported missing. However, the alert was later stood down and the case reclassified as a missing person.

Gardaí say that they now believe that Sait travelled of his own free will from Wexford to Sligo to two men, known to them as 'organised criminals'.

Sait has since returned to Wexford.
