The search for the five-year-old boy taken from hospital by his parents while being treated for a life-threatening tumour has extended to Spain, after police confirmed the family had links in the country.
Hampshire police appealed on Saturday for anyone with friends or family in Spain to help in their search for Ashya King, who was taken from Southampton General Hospital without doctors' approval seven days after an operation for a malignant stage four tumour.
Police on both sides of the Channel are engaged in a desperate search for the five-year-old boy, whose battery-operated feeding tube is thought to have run out on Friday night. It can only be replaced by medical experts, leading police to state that “time is running out” for the youngster.
Officers leading the hunt said they had “positive information” to suggest that Ashya’s family may now be in Spain where they have “strong links” to the Marbella area.
In a message on social media sites the force stated: “Do you have friends or family living in Spain? Or own property in Spain? Please help spread our appeal in this country. The King family could have crossed the border. They are believed to have links there.”

Police have also translated their appeals for information about the family’s whereabouts into Spanish and are now working closely with Spanish authorities to find Ashya.
It is understood police in Marbella have been liaising with officers in Hampshire.
The search widened considerably on Friday as Interpol sent out a missing persons alert to each of its 190 member countries.
Ashya’s parents Brett King, 51, and Naghemeh King, 45 – who are Jehovah’s Witnesses – boarded a cross-Channel ferry from Portsmouth to Cherbourg with Ashya’s six siblings after removing him from the hospital.
Officers from Hampshire are “working closely” with their French counterparts to urgently trace the family, using car number plate recognition equipment and making inquiries at hotels, guesthouses and motorway service stations along their possible routes on the continent.
The Telegraph revealed on Friday that the King family have business and family connections to Spain, particularly around the Marbella area and it is now thought they may have headed to the resort town.
Mr King is listed on the Linked In business networking site as a self employed director dealing in property and real estate in the Marbella area.
According to his Facebook page, Ashya’s brother Naveed has several friends who live in the Spanish resort, and neighbours at the family’s home have spoken of the family planning to spend time at a villa in the country owned by Mrs King’s parents.
It is thought the Kings may be heading to Spain to seek a second opinion on their son’s condition in a desperate attempt to do all they can to save his life.
A family friend claimed the Kings had fled the country because they refused to accept that ‘nothing can be done’ for their dangerously ill son.
Katie Fletcher made her comment on the Hampshire Police Facebook page, stating: “This is my mother’s friend, she has run away in desperation because they cannot accept that there is nothing that can be done for their son.
“They want to look for help abroad. Please don’t judge – they are a very sweet loving family and I can only believe they are doing this because they want to help their son.”
It emerged on Friday that vital time may have been lost after it was revealed police were not alerted by hospital managers that the youngster was missing until 8.35pm on Thursday, more than six hours after he had been taken by his parents.
Hampshire’s Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead said: “It is vital that we find Ashya. Time is running out for this little boy. We need to find him and we need to find him urgently.”
University Hospital Southampton Trust (UHS), which runs Southampton General Hospital, said Ashya was a long term patient who was permitted to leave the ward “under the supervision of his parents as part of his ongoing rehabilitation”.
Staff contacted police “when the length of time he had been absent became a cause of concern to staff” and attempts to contact the family had been unsuccessful, a spokesman said.
Police said the six-and-a-half-hour gap between Ashya being taken from hospital and police being called is “something we need to look at and needs to be considered further down the line”.
In July, Naveed, 20, posted a moving video on YouTube in which he explained that his brother had been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
In a poignant message to Ashya, he said: “Last night you were diagnosed with cancer. We all were panicking for you. They’ve had to do an emergency operation to get the fluids out of your brain.
“I haven’t slept anything really, I’ve been awake all night worrying. Today Dad came back and said you were going to have an emergency operation in the next 10-15 minutes.
“So I just want to say that we love you so much and everyone is sending their love on Facebook.
“And we’re going to look back in 10 years’ time when you’re 15 and see that everything that has changed for the better and just because they were bad at one point doesn’t mean they will always be bad.”
Naveed also posted footage of a visit to his brother in hospital, having to cut away after breaking down in tears.
On August 18 he posted an update on Facebook signed “King family”, saying Ashya had been “progressing slowly but continuously with only minor problems along the way”.
The post included several pictures, one showing Ashya with his mother and another of a large stitched wound at the back of the boy’s head and neck.
Naveed wrote: “He (Ashya) is now able to swallow (only liquid things like water and on odd occasions soft yogurt) but not chew or move his leaps (sic). He can also close his eye lids but still struggles in moving his eyes to look at people or things.
“He is still unable to talk to explain how he feels or what may be hurting him on occasions. As a family we thank everyone who has taken their time in prayer for Ashya to get better and also by the amazing gifts he has received from those prayers!
“He is still far from being a normal child and still not out of the danger zone of where minor issues could cause severe problems for his brain, so please continue to pray for him to have the strength and to be able to recuperate quickly!”
Jehovah’s Witnesses refuse blood transfusions on religious grounds but are open to other medical procedures. A spokesman for the church confirmed Ashya’s parents were members of the movement but said “there is absolutely no indication, as far as we are aware, that their decision is in any way motivated by any religious convictions”.
Mr Shead said Ashya had undergone “extensive surgery” and his last operation was seven days ago. He said: “The information we have received from his medical team at Southampton General Hospital is that he must continue to be fed via a tube by someone with the relevant medical training. If he doesn’t receive urgent medical care, or the wrong treatment is given, his condition will become life-threatening.”
NHS guidelines say that when a child’s life is in danger, the doctor has the right to do whatever is needed to save the child’s life. If a parent or guardian fails to provide medical help for a child, or unreasonably refuse to allow treatment, they can be prosecuted for neglect.
Police have released an image of Ashya being wheeled out of Southampton General Hospital by his father yesterday, as well as pictures of his parents and the type of vehicle they used to flee the UK. The family are travelling in a grey-coloured Hyundai I800 Style CRDI, registration KP60 HWK, and they are still believed to be in France.
Ashya is likely to be in a wheelchair or buggy, he cannot communicate verbally and is immobile.
A spokesman for Brittany Ferries confirmed the family had declared they were travelling with a child with “special medical needs” at the time of booking their crossing.
Ashya’s grandmother Patricia last night urged his parents to return him to Britain.
Mrs King said: “All I would say to Brett is please, bring him back. I thought they were at the hospital – I had no idea they had gone anywhere. We have all been in a terrible state over Ashya’s health – it’s been a dreadful time for us all over the last month.”
She said of her son and daughter-in-law: “He’s the most caring and wonderful father you could ever have. The kids love him. Naghemeh hadn’t left the hospital at all. She had been there the whole time (Ashya) had been in there – sleeps there and everything. She’s a wonderful mother. That’s her life.”
* Anyone with information about Ashya’s whereabouts should contact Hampshire Constabulary on 101, quoting Operation Aquilion.

Correct, it's based on stupidity and that's why they're Jehovah’s Witnesses in the first place.

Re: Time Running Out for Brain Tumour Boy 'kidnapped' by Parents

People like these parents make me want to take them by the neck and shake them until they can't see. Then I want their kid to be taken from them and given to people that will think of the child and not some made up religion.

I called them being the ol' Witness doucheturds the moment I heard about it.

A child may die but at least their genes will not be passed on through him. Can't say anything for the other children of their brood. They breed like rats.

Police: Five-year-old Ashya King found alive in Spain

Police say they have found a five-year-old boy who was taken from hospital by his parents against doctors' advice. He was found alive in Spain.

In a family video uploaded to YouTube on Saturday night, the boy's father explained that they left the UK to seek a special form of treatment in Czechoslovakia.

Ashya King's family took him from Southampton General Hospital at around 2pm on Thursday and travelled on a ferry to France some two hours later.

Police confirmed that a European arrest warrant had been issued for Ashya's parents.

Ashya King: Missing boy with brain tumour found in Spain

BBC UK
As Tom Burridge reports, Hampshire Police said that Ashya King was found in Spain

A five-year-old boy with a brain tumour whose parents removed him from hospital against medical advice has been found.

Ashya King was found in Spain where his parents were arrested and are being questioned, Hampshire Police confirmed.

They said Ashya showed no visible signs of distress and was taken to hospital.

Brett and Naghemeh King took Ashya from hospital in Southampton on Thursday. In a video posted on YouTube, Mr King said they took him to seek a cancer treatment not available on the NHS.

He said the five-year-old was doing well and while there had been "a lot of talk" about a machine used to feed him, Mr King indicated it was operating normally.

It is not yet clear when the video, which shows Mr King sitting on a bed with Ashya, was recorded.

Situation 'very serious'

The family had been last seen boarding a ferry to France.

In a press conference, Hampshire Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead said Ashya and his parents were located near Malaga.

"We don't have many details on Ashya's condition at this point in time, but what we do know is he was showing no visible signs of distress," Mr Shead said.

He confirmed Mr and Mrs King were arrested and taken to a police station.

"There are no winners in this situation," he said.

"We've said all along this must be a terribly distressing time for Ashya's family and I stand by that now. I think it's been a dreadful period for them."

A European arrest warrant had been issued for Mr and Mrs King after they took Ashya from Southampton General Hospital.

Concerns for his health had grown because he is fed through a complex unit and its batteries, designed only for temporary use and not easily replaced, might have run out.

Police had said it was unclear whether Ashya's parents had spare batteries.

Re: Time Running Out for Brain Tumour Boy 'kidnapped' by Parents

If nothing can be done and he's dying, why so eager to get him back into the hospital?

Keep him going on the machines to run up a nice bill?

Re: Time Running Out for Brain Tumour Boy 'kidnapped' by Parents

So the kids parents don't want their little boy subjected to painful treatment and don't want him to spend the rest of his small life isolated in some hospital room, and they are labelled as kidnapping their child?

How can you kidnap your own child? This issue fundamentally comes down to whether you believe kids are slaves, owned by the state for which the state should decide how they live or are the products of their parents, who are intertwined by genes, a relationship which is sacred and shall not be infringed. Why don't people worry about their own kids instead of wanting the government to force its will and destroy the lives of a family. Every cop, prosecutor, jailer and judge in this case and in every case where the government physically takes a child away from his or her parents is guilty of the worst sin.

Let this kid and his parents be.
