BRITISH police are attempting to find a man who tried to snatch a three-year-old girl from her parents in the Canary Islands.

A family from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, were on holiday in Costa Teguise in Lanzarote on 30 January last year when a man – believed to be British – attempted to kidnap the girl in a shop.

The victim’s father noticed she was missing, left a store and spotted the youngster being led around a corner into an alleyway by a man. He shouted out, and pulled his daughter from the man. The family saw the same man later, acting suspiciously.

The family took photos of the man, which were released yesterday by police in an attempt to identify him.
