A manhunt is underway for a mother and father suspected of abducting their two-year-old daughter and taking her to Spain. 

Kelly Gibson, 35, and Lee Rogers, 39, are believed to have boarded a flight from Glasgow to Alicante with their daughter, Gracie-May Rogers, on Tuesday. 

The child, from Lancaster, was last seen with her mother at around 10am the same day. 

Investigators believe the trio arrived at Alicante, on the Costa Blanca, at 9.35pm on August 24 – although there has been no reported sighting of the family.        

Officers are treating it as a missing child case and are desperately hunting Gibson and Rogers on suspicion of abducting the young girl.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police 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.

‘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 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 is urged to call Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log 0621 of August 25.
