    They have been captured on CCTV at a bus station in Turkey for 18 hours calmly waiting to board a bus for Syria:

    They are definitely now in Syria.

    I was was hoping for more conversation here about these girls (and others like them). It fascinates anger and disgusts me that young, Western born women are feeling this is a good plan. What kind of kids are these that see beheadings and burning people alive in cages and crucifixions and heads on stakes and think, "Yeah. This sounds fun! I want to go marry on of those guys. And never be free to return. And never see my family again. Sleep in my bed. Listen to pop music. Watch western tv. Go to the movies."

    There was actually a good article recently on the motivation of young western girls and women who join these groups. It doesn't fully explain things to me but it's interesting. Let me see if I can find it.

    At least two of three of the girls are already married and widowed within the space of a year. If they still reside in Raqqa, the capital of the 'islamic state', all i have to say is a huge US-Coalition-Russia offensive is in the works to take Raqqa back. They have leaflet dropped telling people to get out of the city (which, people cant actually do). As much as i feel bad for them (bright teenage girls blindly falling for propaganda, going off to hell on earth), I feel even worse for their families. They are never making it out of Syria alive. They might have been killed already, as contact was lost with their family in England in mid December 2015.

    Sadly for her, if IS found out she was trying to leave she would likely have met with a much worse fate.
