Annmarie Lawton Bio, Annmarie Lawton Wiki
Annmarie Lawton is ‘safe and well’ after a man and woman were arrested near a shopping centre almost 18 hours after she was last seen by her mum in Bristol
The girl did not return home in Bedminster, Bristol, after her 29-year-old neighbor Annmarie Lawton and an unknown man went to McDonald’s on Wednesday at 3 pm.
Her worried mother reported her disappearance after about four hours, which prompted an urgent call and a public appeal for help.
A member of the public called officers after seeing the girl with a man and woman at Broadmead Mall just after 9 am on Thursday.
A viewer said that the couple appeared to be “arguing” and the female student looked injured and well.
It was stated that the police arrived within minutes and detained the adults in the nearby Galleries mall, just a few hundred meters from the police station.
The audience said that Tillie was taken to a safe place by the police and was visibly upset when the man and woman were detained.
Pictures and videos posted on Twitter show Lawton crying as he and a man were detained by Avon and Somerset police.
The two were removed from the mall and a police officer was found holding an orange carrying bag containing children’s toys and something that looked like an umbrella.
The girl did not appear in the pictures or video, but the police confirmed that she was safe.
A spokesperson said: “The officers found a safe and good place in Bristol this morning, following an appeal to track down.
“A man and a woman were arrested.
“We want to thank everyone who contacted us or shared our appeal.”
A man who witnessed the adult detention said, “As I understand it, they were first spotted by a public on Broadmead, then they walked into the Galleries and they were in the Galleries the police found with them.
“As far as I understand it was taken under security by the police.
“They were found while shopping in galleries.
“Someone who saw them said they seemed to be arguing, and the little girl was with them.
“It looks like they were going shopping one Thursday morning.
“With them they said [girl] looked fine, but when they got caught, she looked pretty sad.
“He was taken safely by the police.
“The man walked down Union Street and the woman was put in the back of a police car.
