Naomi Button has launched an international appeal to help find her five-year-old daughter, Elsa Salama, who was snatched by her father in Egypt.
Elsa's father, Egyptian-born Tamer Salama, 35, is currently in prison for refusing to comply with court orders to return her to her mother.
In an interview with Sky News, Ms Button said:
I worry that she's crying for me. I wonder that she thinks I just left her.
I don't know what she's been told. I don't know if she thinks I don't want her and I just left here in Egypt.
Please just let her come home to her mummy. She found it very difficult being away from me for any length of time.
I know that she wants to be back home with mummy and I hope that they do the right thing.
