London’s High Court heard how Ruby was wrongfully brought to the UK by Victoria McKay, 43, in September before a judge in Melbourne ordered her to return to Australia.

But their whereabouts remain a complete unknown months after they were supposed to come back.

Mr Uhd is Australian, Ms McKay was born in Birmingham but had been living in Australia for more than 20 years, and Ruby was born in Australia.

Both of the parents are yoga teachers.

According to Mr Uhd’s lawyer James Netto, Ms McKay and Ruby are thought to be living in a blue Renault Trafic camper van, registration E527 HPC.

He believes Ms McKay could be in Birmingham or the Littlehampton area of West Sussex, where she is thought to have relatives.

It is also possible she may have travelled to Scotland, and could be living on campsites, caravan parks or farms.

Speaking at the High Court, where a ban was lifted on identifying the child, Mr Netto said: “Ruby’s father remains exceptionally concerned for her welfare as a result of Ms McKay’s very transient lifestyle.

“He wishes to make it clear that Ms McKay is not in any sort of trouble.

“He is simply seeking for Ruby to be found safely, and for her to return to her home in Melbourne.

“He asks that anyone who sees her or Ruby to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
