Urgent search for Love Island star's mum missing with girl, 8, as cops plead for info

COPS have launched an urgent hunt for a Love Island star's mum who vanished with an eight-year-old girl.

Little Darcy Shea went missing from her primary school in Blackpool, Lancashire, at 9am this morning – and hasn't been seen since.

Cops fear she was taken by Jane Prior, 60 – whose daughter Kendall Rae Knight soared to fame on ITV dating show Love Island.

She appeared on season four of the hit series, alongside stars Dani Dyer, Laura Anderson and Josh Denzel.

Jane knows Darcy – who is not believed to be in danger – but did not have permission to take her from school.

​Supt Becky Smith, of Lancashire Police, 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.
