Fears For Two Children Missing With Father
A manhunt is under way after a father disappeared with his toddler and baby.
Staffordshire Police said they are concerned for the welfare of two children who were taken by their father from a hotel in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.
Saleem Tahir, 40, is understood to have smashed his way into a room where Na'llah Khan, aged two, and her brother Sulailman, 10 months, were being looked after at around 5pm on Friday and fled.
The pair were in the care of their mother in the hotel at the time.
Mr Tahir, who is originally from Nottingham, was seen with the children in the Selly Oak area of Birmingham at 8pm on Friday night.
Police say it is possible the children are with their 67-year-old grandmother, Denise Smith-Sellers.
Officers issued an urgent appeal asking for anyone who has seen Mr Tahir, Ms Smith-Sellers or the children to get in touch.
A spokesman for Staffordshire police said: "Have you seen these two children? Please call Staffordshire Police on 101."
