TWO Dutch teens who went missing in Spain on Tuesday have been found alive and well.

Spanish and Dutch police had been searching for the pair since they unexpectedly caught a flight from Eindhoven to the Andalucian province on Tuesday night.

The Dutch force said officers tracked them down in the Faro holiday resort following a tip-off.

They had previously been working off information that the girls, who left without taking any luggage or mobile phones, may have travelled to Marbella.

Angelica van der Heijden, a spokeswoman for the family, told Dutch newspaper Telegraaf that they had “slept in a hotel.”

She added to Dutch broadcaster NOS that the families wanted to understand the motives for the girls’ disappearance before making a public statement.

One of the girl’s fathers has gone to the area to collect them. He flew to Spain earlier in the week to join the search.
