Two children who went missing after setting off on a bike ride have been found safe and well.
Lara and Mathew Rydlewicz, aged 14 and 12, were last seen at 2.30pm on Monday when they left the car park at Bennachie Visitor Centre, near Inverurie in Aberdeenshire, to follow a cycle trail through the woods.
The youngsters disappeared and after a search by a team that included police with dogs and the mountain rescue team, were found at 1.40am by an RAF rescue helicopter.
A spokesman for Grampian Police said the pair had got lost and were eventually found on the cycle track they had been sent on by their parents.
The visitor centre is located in the heart of Bennachie Forest, a popular cycling and walking spot.
The spokesman said: "We would like to thank the local mountain rescue team and air rescue for their invaluable assistance in searching the area."
