Thames Valley police are attempting to find a man who allegedly tried to snatch three-year-old girl in Lanzarote on January 30.
The family, from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, were on holiday in Costa Teguise when a man, believed to British, is said to have attempted to kidnap the girl in a shop.
The victim's father said he noticed she was missing and spotted her being led around the corner into an alleyway by a man, who was holding her by the hand. He said he shouted out and ran towards the pair, and the man immediately fled.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is managing an investigation by Thames Valley Police into allegations against a police officer of misconduct in public office and unauthorised disclosure of information.
The allegations, which originate from a complaint made by a member of the public, are that a police constable conducted an inappropriate relationship with a woman in a vulnerable position and that he also provided that woman with confidential information.
As a result of that investigation a Thames Valley Police constable based in the Aylesbury area, aged 36, was arrested and questioned on Friday. He has been bailed to a date in April.
IPCC Commissioner Mike Franklin said: "The investigation follows Thames Valley Police’s decision to refer this matter to the IPCC on Tuesday, February 26.
"These are serious allegations and for that reason I have decided that this investigation should be conducted under the direction and control of the IPCC.”
Police in the New Forest say they are growing increasingly concerned for the safety of a 17-year-old boy from Frogham after he disappeared from his home.
Ross Haughey was last seen at around 1.30pm yesterday, when he left his home in Abbotswell Road, telling his parents he was going for a walk.
Ross regularly likes to walk in the Forest but usually comes back after a few hours.
He's known to use the paths and tracks towards Fritham near the streams, Hyde Farm Shop or around the Gorley area.
However, he is fit and used to walking long distances so may have gone further afield.
He is described as slim, 5ft 10in, with short dark hair and wearing a grey top with a hood. He also wore jeans and white running shoes with green edging.
He took with him a wax effect jacket in a rucksack. He sometimes suffers from depression but was thought to be fine when he left for his walk.
Sgnt Simon Flint said: “We’ve had officers out searching for Ross with the assistance of search volunteers.
"Police dogs units and Dorset Police air support have also been assisting the search.
"I’d urge anyone who has seen Ross or has any idea where he may be to contact the duty sergeant at Ringwood Police Station on 101 as soon as possible.”
