Authorities have launched an urgent appeal after a two-year-old girl was abducted from Lancaster and taken abroad.
The two-year-old was last seen with her mother Kelly Gibson, at about 10am on Tuesday, August 24th
Sources say it is believed they boarded a plane from Glasgow airport at 5.30pm, on Wednesday, August 25th along with Gracie’s father Lee Rogers and arrived in Alicante, Spain at 9.35pm on the same day, although there have been no confirmed sightings of them in Spain.
Police spokesperson said, “We are treating Gracie-May as a missing child and both Kelly Gibson, 35, and Lee Rogers, 39, are now wanted on suspicion of child abduction.”
“We are working closely with our law enforcement and child protection partners in Spain in a bid to bring Gracie-May home safely and we are appealing to anyone who sees the family or who has information on where they may be to get in touch as a matter of urgency.
Detective Inspector Andy Ellis, of Lancaster CID, said: “We are growing increasingly concerned, especially for the welfare of Gracie-May and Kelly Gibson, and we would appeal to anyone who sees the three of them together or separately to get in touch urgently.
“The last information we have is that the family landed in Alicante on Tuesday evening but as there have been no confirmed sightings since then it is possible that they have moved on.
“We appreciate that this incident may cause concern for some people but we are working closely with our partners in the Spanish Police and our overriding priority is the safe return of this young child.”
Anyone with information should contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log 0621 of August 25th. For sightings please contact the local police in the relevant area.
