URGENT APPEAL – PLEASE READ***
From Blackpool Police – Have you seen Darcy Shea from Blackpool?
We are growing increasingly concerned about Darcy who was last seen outside St Cuthbert’s Primary School on Lightwood Avenue in Blackpool shortly before 9am today (Friday, May 27th)
We believe Darcy left the school with a woman we believe to be Jane Prior, 60, possibly in a blue Mitsubishi Colt car registration SP56 RHO
Darcy is 8 years old, white, blond hair in a pony tail. She was last seen wearing a royal blur cardigan with a St Cuthbert’s school badge on, a white polo shirt, skirt and white socks.
Jane Prior has links to Preston and North Wales but at this we believe that she may still be in the local area.
Supt Becky Smith, of West 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.
“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.
Officers are carrying out searches and conducting a number of enquiries to try and find the pair.
Anyone with information or sightings of either Jane, Darcy or the vehicle should call 999 immediately quoting log 292 of today.
