Scotland Yard said Friday it fears that three missing teenage girls are en route to Syria through Turkey to join the terrorist group Islamic State and appealed through social media to try to convince them to return home before they cross the border.

Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and an unnamed 15-year-old, from London's Bethnal Green Academy, flew during their mid-term break from London's Gatwick Airport to Istanbul on Tuesday, according to London Metro Police.
