Police have launched an urgent appeal to find Love Island star Kendall Rae Knight's mum Jane Prior, who has gone missing with eight year old Darcy Shea.

Darcy went missing from her primary school in Blackpool this morning, Friday 27 May, at 9am.

Supt Becky Smith, of Lancashire Police, said: "While there is no suggestion that Darcy is at any immediate risk we are growing more and more concerned about her welfare as time goes on.

"Jane Prior and Darcy are known to one another but Jane did not have permission to take her from the school and we need to find them both as soon as we can."

She continued: "I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious at the school this morning or who sees Darcy in company with an older woman to get in touch immediately.

"Please can anyone in a park or open space or at an amusement park please keep their eyes open. Jane , please get in touch with us.

"It is obvious that you care for Darcy but as time goes on her family are understandably becoming increasingly concerned and as a mother I would urge you to make contact with us urgently and return Darcy as she too will be confused.

"Whatever the reasons are that have led to this incident today, we will listen to you and look to give you any support that you need. I have specially trained officers ready to take your call now so please call us on 07929 764987."
