Two teenage girls who went missing in Pakistan on 8 January have been found by the police more than 1,200km away from their home after two days
According to India Today, the girls ran away from their homes in Karachi Korangi to Lahore, where they planned to fly to South Korea to meet K-pop supergroup BTS.
According to Korangi senior superintendent of police Abraiz Ali Abbasi, the girls are aged 13 and 14
The father of the 13-year-old teen filed a missing persons report after they met up at the younger one's home and were later nowhere to be found.
The senior superintendent said the police then found a diary at the girls' homes that revealed their plans to meet BTS.
"From the diary, we saw mentions of train timetables and that they had been planning to run away with another friend of theirs, whom we then interviewed," Abassi was quoted as saying.
The two girls were eventually found already in the custody of police in Lahore, where they had travelled by train
Abbasi said the girls have already been taken back to their homes in Karachi. He also urged parents to monitor their children and the content that they are viewing online.
