Cops hunting three-year-old Olly Sheridan who vanished with his mum Ellie Yarrow-Sanders in Basildon in July

Little Olly Sheridan is embroiled in a family court dispute between estranged parents Ellie Yarrow-Sanders, 26, and Patrick Sheridan, 45.

The youngster and his mum disappeared in July and now a High Court judge says he is "gravely concerned" for the pair.

Mr Justice Williams lifted reporting restrictions to identify the family, from Basildon, Essex, in the hope Olly and Ellie will be found.

Dad Patrick – a civil engineer – said he is "desperately worried" about his son as he begged the public for help.

Law firm Irwin Mitchell – representing the dad – said the pair vanished in July shortly before Ellie was due to give evidence at a "critical" court hearing in Chelmsford.


Patrick said: "We’re trying everything to find Olly but it is clear that major steps have been taken to conceal where he is.

"He’s been gone for months now and I miss him every single day. It’s just been a living nightmare no parent should have to go through and I’m sick with worry.

“The run-up to Christmas has been unbearable for us this year knowing we might not get to see him, but I live in hope every day that we’ll find him.”

He added: "My message to Ellie is simple: please come back so that we can see Olly’s alright. That’s all I want.”

Any person with any information to give as to Olly’s whereabouts should contact Essex Police on the non-emergency line using 101.
