A BRITISH mum on holiday in Mallorca almost had her baby snatched from her by a mystery woman, she has said.

Blaise Deacon claims the woman tried to take her 23-month-old daughter Darcie from the HYB Eurocalas Hotel in Calas de Mallorca while her partner was in the toilet.

SNATCH FEAR: Mum ‘s terror after woman tries to take child

Ms Deacon, from Kent, said the woman came up to her around 11pm on Saturday night and put her arms round the child.

“The lady put her arms around her telling us that she was taking her. But I held on tight as my sister told her no. When the women realised she wasn’t getting her she took off running,” she said.

“I chased her and she ran out of the hotel into a car.”

She described the woman as blonde with dark skin, with police now investigating the claims.

The family returned to the UK on Tuesday.
