Even as international search operations for the three missing British teen girls continues unabated, reports have emerged that their Isis handlers may have been able to sneak the 'jihadi brides' into Syria through Turkey.

Several international agencies have reportedly been coordinating the search to trace the three girls, who were able to make their way into Syria via Turkey.

The teens are all students of Bethnal Green Academy in London. The reports on the missing girls sparked a major uproar online as many were surprised that none of the agencies found it suspicious that three girls were flying from Gatwick to Istanbul with a one-way ticket.

Turkish intelligence sources reportedly told The Telegraph that the three British teens may now have crossed into Syria with the help of their Isis handlers.

The Turkish sources have information that Amira Abase, 15, Shamima Begum, 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, have been spotted in an Isis-controlled Syrian town of Tal Abyad.

"They were seen in Tal Abyad on Friday. They were travelling with a Syrian male in a private car. They were using Syrian identity cards," the Turkish intelligence source told the news agency, claiming the girls were in Turkey two days before travelling to Syria.

It is now believed that the three British teens will soon become 'jihadi brides' as they will be married off to Isis fighters. The British authorities are still trying to understand how the three teens were radicalised and if their key contact person was an Isis insider.
