Det Chief Insp Fiona Gaffney, of Kirklees Police, said: “We have been carrying out extensive enquiries to trace all three children since they were reported missing including press appeals.

“Most of the work has been behind the scenes, however, as we strongly believe the three girls are with family members. We do not believe any third party is involved.

“Work has included enquiries and working with partner agencies including those in Hungary.

“We are, however, becoming increasingly concerned for their welfare as we have been unable to find them and are now calling on members of the public, particularly members of the Hungarian community, to come forward and help us find these girls as we need to locate them and ensure they are OK.”
