Two Sevenoaks schoolgirls and their half-brother have been reported missing in Thailand. 

Thai Police are working with Interpol to try and locate the girls, Ananya (known as Annie) aged six, Alina Day, ten, and their three-year-old half brother, Marvin, who went missing on Sunday June 1.

The sisters were on a trip to see their mother Onwarat Gamlem in Pattaya, who separated from their father Robert Day in 2010.

The girls live with Mr Day in Sevenoaks, as he was granted full custody in the divorce settlement.

It became apparent the girls were missing after they were not returned to him after a few days, as planned.

Thai reports state the woman initially said she had taken her daughters to the zoo, but a visit to her home revealed she had fled, removing SIM cards out of her iPad and phone in an alleged bid to avoid being found.

Thai police and officials from the embassy are concerned for the well-being of the children. 

Interpol is said to be aware of the situation and appeals have been made across Thailand for their safe return.
