The UK police added that the father was being investigated on suspicion of kidnapping.

Reports said that Angelo, who lives with his Colombian mum full-time in Bristol, had visited the town of Puente Genil in the southern Spanish region of Cordoba with his Spanish dad, but he failed to return home as agreed by the parents.

After allegedly breaking the court agreement, the local authorities have confirmed that they have identified Cabello’s location.

Meanwhile, little Angelo is back with his mother in the UK, according to reports.

It is currently unclear how they were found or if the father has been arrested yet.

The concerned mother staged protests about the situation in the UK, Spain and Colombia where she is from, according to local media.

She said the Spanish demonstration was due to “Rafael’s family’s silence” over the matter.
