“There is no suggestion that Chloe was forcibly taken, however we need to bring her home to ensure she is safe. “Moran has a history of violence and is wanted on a recall for prison for breaching the terms of his license.
“Due to Chloe’s age, he is also wanted on suspicion of child abduction. “We think the pair may be in Blackpool, we have had potential sightings at the Pleasure Beach and the train station. Anyone who may have seen them is asked to contact police as soon as possible.”
