London: A six-year-old girl, born to a Pakistani man and a British woman, who was abducted by her father in 2009 and taken to Pakistan, is now on her way home to her mother to Britain, a media report said.

Atiya Anjum-Wilkinson went missing in November 2009 after going to stay with her father, Razwan Ali Anjum, Sky News reported.

The girl`s father, in his late 20s, took her to Pakistan and told her 32-year-old mother, Gemma Wilkinson, she would never see the child again.

The former insurance salesman said he was taking the girl to Southport. Instead he took her to Pakistan`s Lahore city.

Anjum is serving a prison sentence in Britain for refusing to reveal his daughter`s whereabouts despite a court order.

Sources told Sky News that Atiya has been located in Pakistan and is due to arrive back in Britain soon.

In November, Wilkinson from Greater Manchester made a fresh appeal for information on her daughter`s whereabouts.

Wilkinson`s on-off relationship with Anjum ended in 2008.

Anjum was handed a 12-month jail term by a court in April after he refused to reveal where his daughter was.
