A 35-year-old woman was stopped at Manchester Airport with a two-year-old girl who had been reported missing.
Now, she is set to be questioned by police after they took the toddler away from her last night, Sunday, August 29.
Gracie-May Rogers from Lancaster has been taken to a safe place by police, they said, as reported by LancsLive.
A 39-year-old man who police also wanted to speak to in relation to Gracie-May's disappearance has not returned to the UK.
