Chloé Rodriguez’s parents went to Strasbourg, near the German border, late Friday night under police escort to pick her up and take her to their home village, Barjac in south-east France.

The missing girl was discovered in a car boot by German police near Offenburg, close to the French border, during a routine inspection.
