A four-year-old girl who has been missing since May has been found in Spain following an appeal on Sky News.

Elliana Shand, who went missing with her mother, was discovered as a result of a tip-off following a plea for information made by her grandparents.

Sean and Eileen Doyle, her paternal grandparents, said they were “over the moon”.

News that Elliana had been found was revealed by Mr Justice Hayden at a High Court hearing on Friday.

He said Elliana was found safe and well by Spanish police on Thursday and would return to England in the coming days.

In December, Mr Justice Hayden asked expats in Spain for information about the whereabouts of Elliana and her mother, after saying there was evidence they were in the country.

The judge praised the efforts of the UK and Spanish police and Foreign Office staff.
