Lancashire police also believe they could have travelled to Ireland.

Det Insp Steve Monk, of South Police, said: ““I would like to stress that our immediate concern is the safety of these two young children and I would urge anyone who sees the parents or who knows where they may be to get in touch.

“Equally I would urge Kayleigh and Neil to get in touch if they see this appeal so that we can establish the children are okay.”

Anyone with information should contact 101 quoting log number 0470 of June 26th. For immediate sightings please call 999.
