FEARS are growing for a missing Brit dad, 46, and son, 22, who disappeared while holidaying in Malaga six days ago.
Sussex Police said investigators are “extremely concerned for a father and son whose family have been unable to get in contact with them”.
Daniel and Liam Poole flew to Malaga, Spain, on Sunday March 31 and checked into a hotel, but their family have not had contact with the pair since Monday April 1.
Detective Sergeant Alan Fenn of the missing persons team said: “This is extremely unusual behaviour from Daniel and Liam to not be in contact with their family.
“They have been on holiday together before, but never have they lost contact with family members in Burgess Hill where they live.
“We, and their family, are eager to hear from anyone who has made contact with either Daniel or Liam since Monday April 1.”
The Olive Press reports that the pair’s family are set to fly out to meet police in Malaga today to help track them down.
The men were reportedly staying at the Valle Romano Hotel, after arriving in Estepona on March 31 for a six-day holiday, the website adds.
Daniel’s wife, Tara Poole, said: “This is completely out of character for them. They never have their phones off and always keep in touch – we are so worried.”
Tara said she last spoke to Daniel, who runs a car repair shop in Burgess Hill, at about 6.30pm last Monday.
She said she feared that “they might have been caught up in something bad” as “none of it makes sense”.
Their last known whereabouts was at an internet cafe in Estepona, according to Olive Press.
Sussex Police said that Daniel, 46, is white, 5’ 9”, of heavy build and with short grey hair.
Liam, 22, is white, 6’, of medium build and with short light brown hair.
The police said that, should either be seen, dial 999. If you have information on their whereabouts or have made contact with either of the pair since the last known contact, please report online or call 101.
