UK mother pleads for return of snatched child

The mother of a schoolgirl snatched by her father while on a family trip in Egypt has said she is desperate for information about the girl's whereabouts

Naomi Button's appeal came after the father was given a second jail sentence for not returning the child.

The five-year-old girl, Elsa Salama, was taken by Tamer Salama at Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, on 27 December 2011 while visiting her paternal family.

Ms Button from Bramley in Leeds has not seen her daughter since. She told BBC Breakfast that it was "very hard everyday to not hear her in the house" and that her "mission is to find her".
