More information about missing father and son Daniel and Liam Poole has been released as the investigation into their disappearance in Spain continues.

British and Spanish police are working together to try and locate the pair after they travelled to Malaga, Spain, on 31 March. The Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team have resources already working with the Spanish authorities to find Daniel and Liam from Burgess Hill.

Detective Chief Inspector Emma Heater said: "We are working closely with the Spanish Police. One possibility that must be considered, as they have not contacted family or friends, is that they have come to harm.

"We know that Daniel and Liam hired a grey Peugeot 308 car registration number 0254KTM when they arrived in Spain but this has not been returned to the car hire firm.

"Also their luggage was left in their hotel together with their passports suggesting this was not a planned disappearance.

“Their family are very concerned about them as they last heard from them on 1 April, the lack of contact is out of character for the pair. The family are being supported by family liaison officers and are being kept informed.
