A fresh appeal has been launched after a father and son went missing in Spain three months ago.

Daniel and Liam Poole from Burgess Hill travelled to Malaga, Spain, on 31 March and last made contact with their family on 1 April.

Lauryn, daughter and sister of the missing men, said: "We had that family life that everyone wanted and now it's gone. We're here and we're missing them and nothing is the same anymore.

"They are people who we adore and love.

"Just anything would mean so much to us. Somebody must know something."

British and Spanish police continue to investigate their disappearance.

Liam’s mum, Lisa, said they "desperately need" news and their "hopes begin to fade".

Their disappearance, she added, "consumes every waking hour of my day".

Police investigation the disappearance of a father and son in Spain say they have found their luggage and passports in a hotel.

Liam Poole and his son Daniel, from Burgess Hill, travelled to Malaga on 31 March.

The pair's Peugeot 308 which was hired when they arrived has not been returned to the car rental company, a Sussex Police spokesman said.

Det Ch Insp Emma Heater said: "One possibility that must be considered, as they have not contacted family or friends, is that they have come to harm.

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

Their family have not heard from them since 1 April, police said.
