THE father of a British boy has been arrested in Spain after absconding with his son nine months ago. 

Rafael Jurado-Cabello, from Cordoba but with British residency, was arrested at Madrid airport on Saturday after getting off a flight from Mexico with his son Angelo Jurado-Marmolejo.

Angelo’s mother, Karol Marmolejo, said being reunited with her nine-year-old boy was ‘the best Christmas present’.

The boy’s father has been detained under the terms of a European Arrest Warrant.

Avon and Somerset Police, the National Crime Agency, the Crown Prosecution Service and the authorities in Spain all helped with the investigation.

“I really appreciate all the support we’ve received during this very difficult time, including all the help from the public,” said mother Marmolejo.

“I’d be extremely grateful if our family could be given the space and privacy to focus on Angelo.”

British Det Insp Matthew Lloyd said: “Everyone at Avon and Somerset Police is delighted Angelo has been found safe and well and we’ll continue supporting his family back in Bristol.

“We’ll now liaise with the Spanish authorities and the National Crime Agency to arrange the return of Mr Jurado-Cabello to the UK.”
