Police have released a CCTV image showing two-year-old girl Gracie-May Rogers with her parents prior to boarding a flight to Alicante from Glasgow Airport.
As we reported yesterday, police have launched a major investigation after she was abducted from Lancaster and taken abroad from the airport.
She was last seen with her mother Kelly Gibson at about 10am on Tuesday (August 24).
It is believed they boarded a plane at 5.30pm on Wednesday 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.
In the CCTV image shared by Lancashire Police, the child is seen being pushed in her pram by her parents, both of whom are dressed in t-shirts, carrying bags and wearing protective face masks.
Detectives 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.
Officers are working closely with the authorities in Spain in a bid to bring Gracie-May home safely and they 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 25. For sightings please contact the local police in the relevant area.
