A High Court judge has issued an urgent public appeal for missing two-year-old boy Emmanuel Biendarra who disappeared from Kent, England nearly a year ago.
Mr Justice Peel said he is "very concerned" about missing Emmanuel, who has not been seen since his German mother, Kristina Nobis, disappeared with him over the weekend of 30 November 2019.
Emmanuel had been living with his father under a court order and it was agreed 34-year-old Nobis could have him for the weekend.
Nobis did not return with the toddler on December 1 and his father has not seen or heard from his son since.
Concerns for Emmanuel’s welfare are very high and his family wish to have him home safe and well.
Mr Justice Peel said Emmanuel might have been taken to Germany by his mother, but said she also has links in other parts of Europe.
A press release said: "It is believed that Emmanuel may now be with his mother in Germany, Switzerland, Austria or other parts of central Europe."
It went on: "The High Court and Mr Justice Peel are very concerned.
"Mr Justice Peel requests that as a matter of urgency anybody who knows anything which can assist in locating Emmanuel should get in touch as soon as possible.
"Emmanuel lived with his father under court orders and it was agreed that his mother, Kristina Nobis, a German national, could have him to stay on the weekend of 30 November and 1 December 2019.
"At the end of the weekend, Emmanuel's mother did not return him and he has not been seen since."

Emmanuel’s father, who has not been named in the press release, authorised by Mr Justice Peel, said the disappearance of his son has devastated him.
He said he is "so worried" about the boy and urged anyone with any information about Emmanuel or Nobis’ whereabouts to come forward.
The dad said: "I am devastated by Emmanuel’s sudden disappearance. I am so worried about his safety and urge anyone who knows anything to come forward and assist"
Police now urgently request help to find Emmanuel Biendarra and any information or sightings should be reported to Kent Police, Police 101 or through Crimestoppers using crime reference 46/230023/19.
