An international hunt is underway for a mother and her two-year-old son who are believed to have left the UK for Spain.

Lithuanian national Zivile Jokubonyte, 29, and her son Saliamonas are thought to have flown on a Ryanair flight from Bristol Airport to Valencia on August 31.

Investigators say the mother, who lives with her child in Bridgwater, Somerset, has not been in contact with her mother since September 4, which is ‘out of character’.

Avon and Somerset Police say Mrs Jokubonyte’s departure was ‘unexpected’ and are working with Spanish authorities to find out what has happened.


A spokesman for the force urged her to contact either police or her mother to confirm they are both safe.



He added: ‘Officers would like to hear from anyone who is in touch with Zivile and can help to confirm that she and Saliamonas are safe and well.’

Ms Jokubonyte and her son are believed to have used the A2 airport bus service and caught the Ryanair flight FR4440 on August 31.
