A family of five sparked a police manhunt after being reported missing – before it turned out they were just on holiday.

Mother Nicole Rowlands, 43, and her husband David, 46, were being sought by police along with their three children, Luke, 15, Thomas, 12 and Rebecca, 11.

North Wales Police posted an appeal on social media saying the family had vanished from their home in the Denbighshire seaside town of Rhyl.

Officers said on Monday that they were ‘concerned’ about the family’s welfare and believed they might be elsewhere in the UK.

Mrs Rowlands was inundated with calls and messages from friends asking about her welfare – so updated her Facebook page to say they had gone on a last minute break.

Writing on Monday at about 10.30pm, she said: ‘We are on holiday, we are all good, but don’t know why all the fuss.’

Mrs Rowlands, who is originally from Manchester, said they had been on a break ‘for a little over a week’ and had phoned police twice to speak to them.

A spokesman for the force said: ‘We would like to than the public for their help and information. We are now in contact with the family.’
