Dozens of locals joined the chase for the pals in the pouring rain in Stockton, Teesside.
They were found safe on Monday, but rumors circulated.
Why the girls went missing was not disclosed and there is no evidence of a TikTok connection.
However, one social media user warned, “In some cases, this may not be the reason, but a lot is happening around the world.”

“We would always encourage parents to be aware of what could happen on social media.”
