Police are extremely concerned for a father and son whose family have been unable to get in contact with them.

Daniel and Liam Poole flew to Malaga, Spain, on Sunday (March 31) and checked into a hotel but their family have not had contact with the pair since Monday (April 1).

Daniel, 46, is white, 5’ 9”, of heavy build and with short grey hair.

Liam, 22, is white, 6’, of medium build and with short light brown hair.

Detective Sergeant Alan Fenn of the Missing Persons Team said: “This is extremely unusual behaviour from Daniel and Liam to not be in contact with their family.

“They have been on holiday together before but never have they lost contact with family members in Burgess Hill where they live.

“We, and their family, are eager to hear from anyone who has made contact with either Daniel or Liam since Monday (April 1).”

If you see Daniel or Liam please dial 999. If you have information on their whereabouts or have made contact with either of the pair since the last known contact, please report online or call 101 quoting 720 of 03/04.
