Police said there have been no confirmed sightings of them in Spain.

DI 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.”

He said the family may have moved on since landing in Alicante.

He added: “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.”

The force appealed to anyone who sees the family or has information on where they are to get in touch as a matter of urgency.

Anyone with information should contact the Lancashire constabulary on 101 quoting log 0621 of 25 August. For sightings please contact the local police in the relevant area.
