A woman was very happy when her boyfriend offered to take care of the child for the day and treated her to a relaxing day out.
The woman, Gemma Mountney, who is originally from Oxfordshire, England, had moved to Spain, where she lived with her boyfriend Kyshan Van Der Zanden, 22.
Zanden hatched a plan to flee the country with his daughter, but without her mother.
He gave Mountney some shopping vouchers as well as a certificate to visit a spa.
While the woman was out, Zanden packed the belongings of their 21-month-old daughter Laylah, and his own belongings, and fled before his girlfriend returned.
When Mountney returned home after a wonderful and relaxing day out, she found that her daughter’s belongings were gone. She called the police.
“I miss Laylah so much, I just want her back in my arms. I thought he loved me and cared about me, but clearly he did not,” Mountney said.
Spanish detectives have launched a hunt for Zanden and the baby.
