A two-year-old toddler has gone missing with her father in the Home Counties, prompting a huge police search.

Antonia Matei is believed to be with her father Alexandru, 39, but was reported missing to Thames Valley Police who have been searching for the pair.

The girl was last seen wearing Ugg boots and a blue jacket with a pink and blue butterfly pattern at lunchtime yesterday in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

Last night detectives concerned for the pair's safety said they believed Antonia and Mr Matei were with possibly two other people, a man and a woman. 

Thames Valley Police said Antonia and her father were last seen on Pentewan Gate in the Fishermead area of Milton Keynes at 1.30pm yesterday.

A spokesman said: 'Thames Valley Police is appealing for information to find a missing father and daughter, last seen in Milton Keynes. Antonia has a pierced right ear and blond hair. 

'When she was last seen, she was wearing a blue jacket with a pink and blue pattern of butterflies, dark blue sallopettes and brown Ugg boots.

'Alexandru is stocky, with short black, greying hair. When he was last seen, he was wearing a dark blue jacket. It is possible that Alexandru and Antonia are with two other adults, possibly a man and a woman.'

Mr Matei has links to Kempston in Bedfordshire, and Detective Chief Inspector Nick Glister appealed for anyone who had seen the little girl or her father to contact them.

He said last night: 'I am becoming increasingly concerned about the whereabouts of Alexandru and his two-year-old daughter Antonia, who were last seen this afternoon.

'However, I want to reassure the local community that we are conducting an extensive investigation to find Alexandru and Antonia.

'I am making this public appeal because there might be people out there who have information that can help our enquiries.

'If anyone thinks they have seen Alexandru or Antonia, or have any information as to their whereabouts I would urge them to please contact police immediately.'
