Missing boy, 4, returns home ‘safe and well’ in UK after going missing with mum in Turkey

A LITTLE boy who went missing with his mother in Turkey is back “safe and well” in the UK.

George Jack Temperley-Wells, four, travelled from Darlington to the country with mum Brogan Elizabeth Temperley on June 29.

On Wednesday night, grandparents Maureen and George, who lived alongside their granddaughter in Durham, begged for their daughter to get in touch.

Retired Royal Navy diver and businessman George, 85, told The Sun: “We just want her to come home.”

He had not seen little George or Brogan, 28, for two months when she told him she was heading down to see friends in the Midlands, where the family used to live and where she grew up.

But in a statement, Durham Police said the lad and Brogan were back safely following a desperate search for the pair.

They added: “George and his mother have been located safe and well and have returned to the UK, where they are receiving appropriate support.

“Our appeal was seen by hundreds of thousands of people across the world, so we would like to thank every single one of you who shared it and provided information to assist – we really do appreciate your help.”

Durham Police said on Tuesday they were likely to have spent time with George’s dad, Scott Nigel Wells, while abroad.

Mr Temperley had previously said the family “had no idea she was in Turke” or that her ex-partner was in Turkey until she went missing.
