The aunt of two young girls caught in a “tug of love” between their British father and Thai mother has appealed for anyone seeing the two girls to get in touch with her or with the Thai police.

There is a possibility the mother and the two girls are in Phuket, the children’s aunt, Charlotte Day, has said.

missing kidsThe parents, Robert Day and Onwarat “Noklek” Gamlem, were divorced four years ago, with their father being awarded custody of the two girls – 10-year-old Alina and six-year-old Ananya (“Annie”).

The girls stayed in touch with their mother – known also as Wiganda Day and Onwarat Suphikunphong – by internet, and then in May their father took them from England to Pattaya so they could spend some time with her. He dropped them off to spend a few days with their mother.

When Noklek did not return with the children, on June 1 a complaint was laid with Pattaya Police and an arrest warrant was issued for Noklek on a charge of abduction.

Police checked her home and found no one there.

Noklek is believed to be travelling not only with the two girls but also with Marvin, her three-year-old son by her new husband. Her husband, a Norwegian fisherman, left Thailand to work before the girls arrived in Thailand.
