British and Spanish police continue to investigate the disappearance of missing father and son, Daniel and Liam Poole.

The Burgess Hill pair travelled to Malaga, Spain, on March 31 and last made contact with their family on April 1.

Lauryn, daughter and sister of the missing men, has now bravely appealed for anyone with information on the pair to come forward.

Watch her emotional plea here.

Liam’s mum, Lisa, said: “Liam’s disappearance consumes every waking hour of my day and every day I hope and pray for news.

“He has been missing for nearly three months now and this is such a long time not to speak to someone who has been a big part of your life.

“As time goes on, hope begins to fade. Someone must know something to give us the answers we desperately need.

“He is desperately missed by all of the family and all we are asking is if anyone knows anything to get in contact with the police.”

You can report information online or by calling 101 quoting Operation Pheasant.

If you see either Daniel or Liam please dial 999 immediately.
