Missing schoolgirl Megan Stammers was located with her math teacher lover boy, Jeremy Forrest, after an eight-day search. The two were caught walking "hand-in-hand" in a busy shopping square in France, bringing an end to the search for the kidnapped teen. The grown man will also be facing charges of child abduction in the UK, where the two absconded from over a week ago.
The disappearance of this young girl has been a high-profile case over the past week, but not because she was in grave danger. It was because the 15-year-old girl ran away to have a romantic affair with her 30-year-old math teacher, Jeremy Forrest. The man being double her age should know better than to have gotten involved in this sort of situation, so he deserves to face the charges he is facing.
However, will Megan Stammers move on from this ordeal? Just because the two have been found and he has been arrested, doesn't mean this is over by a long shot. While this could be a phase in the teen's life that will be left behind as she get gets older, it could also be a relationship that returns when they figure out a way to make it work. It certainly wouldn't be the first time a student-teacher relationship has prevailed after jail time.
