A TEENAGER who went missing in August last year was reunited with her mother the day before her 16th birthday.

An anonymous caller phoned the equivalent of the Polish Missing People last Tuesday to tell them of the whereabouts of Aleksandra Kulikowska, from Beckenham.

She was found in a squat in Kimberley Road, Haringey, and later met with her mother.

A spokesman for Bromley police said: "We absolutely delighted to see Aleksandra reunited with her family. She had been missing for eight months and in that time we have undertaken numerous enquiries into her whereabouts.

"We would like to thank the local media for all of their assistance in publicising her case".

Figures released by Bromley Police show that more than half of people reported missing in the borough in the last year were under 16.

A total of 854 went missing between April 9 last year and April 8 this year, and 546 were under 16.

Police successfully found 99.8 per cent of those reported missing.

One person Patrick Cloherty, 43, found dead last month in south Norwood after he had been missing for more than a week.

PC Wally Halbert from Bromley police's missing persons unit said: "Most of our missing people come in as low risk and most are found within 48 hours.

"Very rarely do they go over a week.
