Urgent appeal for abducted girl, 2, as police share their ‘increasing concern’

Little Gracie-May Rogers, two, was last seen with her mum Kelly Gibson, 35, at about 10am on August 24. Police say they believe she boarded a plane to Spain with her parents and has not been seen since

Police have launched an urgent appeal to find a two-year-old girl, with police saying both her parents are wanted on suspicion of child abduction.

Little Gracie-May Rogers was last seen with her mother Kelly Gibson, 35, at about 10am on August 24.

Police say they believe she boarded a plane from Glasgow airport at 5.30pm on August 25 along with Gracie’s father Lee Rogers, 39.

Lancashire Police think the family arrived in Alicante, Spain, at 9.35pm on the same day, but there have been no confirmed sightings of them in the country.

Officers have now launched an investigation, asking anyone with information to come forward to help with their inquiries.

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.”

Lancashire Police said in a statement: “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.”

Anyone with information should contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log 0621 of August 25 .
