A shopping list has been found in the bedroom of one of the girls believed to have fled to Syria to join Isil.

The handwritten lists includes a price estimate for flights to Turkey, underwear and an epilator.

The Guardian reported that the unnamed girl had used the French word for ticket to disguise her travel plans.

She also reminds herself to pack a mobile telephone.

Detectives are understood to have been handed the note by the girl’s family after she disappeared.

The three London schoolgirls feared to have travelled to Syria are believed to have successfully reached Isil controlled territory, according to reports.

Sky News claimed that the three girls from Bethnal Green might have been received by British women already living in Raqqah, the de facto capital city of the so-called Islamic State.

Police have refused to confirm reports that the trio have arrived in the Islamic State.

CCTV images previously appeared showing the trio from London passing through an Istanbul coach station en route to the country's south east.

Though their facial features are not clearly visible, Turkish authorities indicated that the girls pictured were missing Bethnal Green Academy pupils Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16. The images were captured in the early hours of February 18.
