A two-year-old girl thought to have been abducted and taken to Spain has safely returned to the UK, police have said.
Gracie-May Rogers was reported missing on Friday after she was last seen on Tuesday morning.
Lancashire Police said she was taken to board a plane to Alicante at Glasgow Airport on Wednesday, arriving in Spain later that day.
On Sunday the force confirmed the Gracie-May had been collected by officers at Manchester Airport.
“She has now been taken to a place of safety,” a statement said.
Police said the toddler was met by officers “in the company of a woman”.
A 35-year-old woman has been detained in connection with Gracie-May’s disappearance, police said, adding that “she is not under arrest” but will be “voluntarily interviewed in due course”.
A 39-year-old man police want to speak to in connection with the incident has “not returned to the UK”, detectives said.
