Mumbai: 

Five girls, students of a South Mumbai school, who had gone missing were traced by Saturday evening and all of them were safe, police said.

The girls studying in class 8th, did not return to their homes from their school in Colaba in South Mumbai on Friday afternoon, following which their parents approached police.

Mid-term exam results were declared on Friday and these girls had failed in two or three subjects each, according to their teachers.

As a search operation began, four of the girls were spotted at the Kurla railway station this afternoon by a constable of Cuffe Parade police station, said the police official.
