The Guardia Civil have launched a desperate hunt for two young children on Thursday afternoon after they were reported missing in the town of Godella in Spain's eastern Valencia region.

The search was launched when a neighbour called 112 to report seeing a man with blood on him chasing after his wife.

Police patrol cars went to the property and questioned the couple – who are parents of two young children aged around four and two years old – and took them both into custody.

They then launched a hunt of nearby areas to find the children. Local newspaper Las Provincias reported that blood had been found during the search.

Sniffer dogs were deployed in the search.
