Missing teenager Martel Lilly traced by police

A 16-year-old boy seen being put into the back of a car has now been found, police said.

Police initially thought Martel Lilly was taken against his will when he was spotted being put into the vehicle in Clacton, Essex, on Thursday.

Officers had been looking for him over the weekend to "ensure his welfare", but said he had now been spoken to.

A 29-year-old man from Canvey Island arrested on suspicion of abduction has been released on bail.

On Sunday, police said their concerns for the teenager had "lowered" after he got in contact with his family
