POLICE in the UK say they are ‘extremely concerned’ for a father and son who flew together to Spain’s Costa del Sol but have not made contact with family members for over a week.
There has been one unconfirmed sighting of the pair in Estepona but Sussex Police say: “They are still missing.
“We’re looking into various lines of enquiry as part of the investigation but working with partners outside of the UK can be complex and take time.
“Daniel and Liam Poole’s lack of contact with their family is totally out of character, hence our appeal for the public’s help in locating them.”
Officers believe that Daniel and Liam Poole flew to Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport on Sunday, March 31, and checked into a hotel but their family have not had contact with the pair since the following day.
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).”
There has been one unconfirmed sighting from someone who told the police: “I saw them in Estepona, Spain, in the local Lidl shop at about 15:00 CET on Monday, 1st April. I suppose there are cameras in the shop?”
Daniel, 46, is described as 5ft 9in tall of heavy build and with short grey hair while Liam, 22, is 6ft and of medium build and with short, light brown hair.
Police ask that if you have information on their whereabouts or have made contact with either of the pair since the last known contact, please report it online or call 101 in the UK quoting 720 of 03/04.
