Children abducted by father found safe in occupied north, back in Limassol

Three children abducted by their father from Limassol have been found safe in the Turkish-held north and are now back in the government controlled areas, philenews reports.

It said that they and the 42 year old father were handed over to the Bicommunal Contact Committee.

Police mounted an operation to find the children — aged 12, six and four — after they were informed last night that they had been taken by their father — who has separated from the mother — without her consent.

They were with a friend of the mother’s on Limassol’s coastal promenade when they were taken.

His car was found abandoned in a car park in Polemidhia at 5.30 am.

Earlier on Wednesday Limassol CID chief Ioannis Soteriades said that all ports and airports had been alerted and Hope for Children and the Bicommunal Contact Committee informed.

An arrest warrant had been issued for the father, who is Jordanian and a resident of Limassol.
