Emma was working in Greece when she met Achilles Mouzakitis. The pair set up a home, worked together in Corfu and had a son.

But the relationship broke down and whilst Emma was moving out, the pair went missing.

"He said come back for him in the morning, I came back to the house and the cars were missing. There was nobody there. He broke my trust, I trusted him to bring him back."

Emma has returned to the UK to gather support from authorities her. She is now doing all she can to raise awareness, including appearing on Greek TV.

The custody battle is going through the courts in Greece but Achilles failed to show. A warrant is out for his arrest.

Emma says she will stay in Greece until she finds her son and is appealing to holidaymakers heading to Corfu to look out for him.
