A mother on a Thomas Cook holiday has revealed how she will run out of vital food supplies for her tube-fed disabled daughter if they aren’t flown home from Spain by the weekend.
Demine Warner, 25, says her daughter Aubree, two, is vision impaired, has cerebral palsy and epilepsy and has to be tube-fed milk through her stomach.
Aubree relies on the milk for all of her hydration and nutrition but it is close to running out.
The girl’s mother, and father Lance Coericius, 30, have heard ‘nothing’ from Thomas Cook after it went bust this morning.
They flew out to Almeria, Spain, just over a week ago, for their first family holiday.

The family now say they are waiting to hear about a return flight to their home in Harlow, Essex.
Demine told the Mirror: ‘We still haven’t heard anything. I’m worried about my daughter as she is on medical milk and cannot eat the food here.
‘So I’m hoping we will able to come home on Wednesday because she will run out of food.’
They are currently making the milk last longer by giving Aubree dioralyte between feeds.
The family were due to leave Spain on a Thomas Cook flight this Wednesday.

Following the collapse of the travel firm, they are now waiting to hear back about potential return flights.
Demine added: ‘We spoke to the Dutch rep this morning and she said to wait until the morning and see if there is any news about our flights.’
If they are unable to get back before the weekend, they will have to take Aubree to a doctor to seek alternative ways to find her, the mother said.
Around 160,000 British citizens are stranded overseas and thousands of others face cancelled holidays after Thomas Cook went bust early this morning.
Flights carrying stranded Thomas Cook customers started arriving home amid mounting fury over how its bosses plundered £30million in pay and bonuses before Britain’s most famous travel firm went to the wall.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson slammed Thomas Cook bosses and questioned whether directors should pay themselves ‘large sums of money’ as their businesses go ‘down the tubes’.
