Police are searching for the mother of a Love Island star over a missing eight-year-old girl who has vanished from outside her school.

Lancashire Constabulary said it was growing increasingly concerned about the whereabouts of youngster Darcy Shea.

She was last seen outside St Cuthbert’s Primary School in Blackpool at 9am this morning and officers think she was picked up Jane Prior, 60.

Ms Prior, who is the mother of Love Island star Kendall Rae Knight, is known to Darcey but did not have permission to collect her up from her parents.

​Officers are currently carrying out searches and conducting a number of enquiries to try and find them both.

Ms Prior –  who has modelled on ITV favourite This Morning – has links to Preston and North Wales but is still believed to be in the Blackpool area.

The pair are thought to be in a blue Mitsubishi Colt car registration SP56 RHO.

Directly appealing to Ms Prior, Supt Becky Smith said: ‘While there is no suggestion that Darcy is at any immediate risk we are growing more and more concerned about her welfare as time goes on. Jane Prior and Darcy are known to one another but Jane did not have permission to take her from the school and we need to find them both as soon as we can.

​’I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious at the school this morning or who sees Darcy in company with an older woman to get in touch immediately. Please can anyone in a park or open space or at an amusement park please keep their eyes open.

​’Jane , please get in touch with us. It is obvious that you care for Darcy but as time goes on her family are understandably becoming increasingly concerned and as a mother I would urge you to make contact with us urgently and return Darcy as she too will be confused.

‘Whatever the reasons are that have led to this incident today, we will listen to you and look to give you any support that you need. I have specially trained officers ready to take your call now so please call us on 07929 764987.’  

​Darcy is white and has blond hair in a pony tail. She was last seen wearing a royal blue cardigan with a St Cuthbert’s school badge on, a white polo shirt, skirt and white socks.

Three years ago Ms Prior appeared on This Morning where she was wined and dined in Italy during a special dating section.

The Matchmaker Mountain segment featured her and explained her motivations for going on the show

She told the programme: ‘My daughter Kendall (Rae Knight) was on Love Island last year and although she didn’t find love on the show, I thought I hopefully might have more luck!!’

​Anyone with information or sightings of either Jane, Darcy or the vehicle should call 999 immediately quoting log 292 of today.
