The daughter of a suspected member of a gang which stole £53m in Britain’s biggest ever cash heist is still trying to track him down in Northern Cyprus after he went on the run 16-years-ago.

Jasmine Lupton was aged only 14 when her builder father Sean Lupton disappeared in November 2006 after being quizzed by police over the infamous raid nine months earlier on a Securitas depot in Tonbridge, Kent.

Now aged 30, she believes her fugitive father may still be in hiding in Northern Cyprus where he was previously spotted leading an extravagant lifestyle of champagne, fast cars, glamorous women and nightclubs.

She has now flown out to the Turkish enclave on the Mediterranean island to conduct her own investigation to find out if is still alive, and confront hm about why he abandoned his family and left them penniless

Jasmine spent a week in Northern Cyprus last year, visiting what she believed were her father’s old haunts and speaking to locals who remembered him.

She appealed for help, putting out a message on social media saying: ‘I’m trying to find my dad. I have been to a few places that have seen him. If you have any information please contact me.’

Jasmine showed locals pictures of her father who was nicknamed ‘Mr Squint’ because of his distinctive boss-eyed appearance.

She spoke to several people who claimed to have seen him ‘in the last couple of years.’

But in the end her trip proved fruitless, and she was forced to return to Britain without meeting him or finding out where he was living.

Jasmine told of her anguish as she made a last ditch appeal for help from anyone who might have known her father who would now be aged 62 if he was still alive

In in an exclusive interview with MailOnline, she said: ‘I spent a week looking for my dad.

I spoke to lots of people who had seen my dad.

‘I went to the casinos, bars and boxing gyms. I spoke to a woman in Kyrenia who knew everything about him.

‘I put myself out there but my dad didn’t come forward. So either he is dead or does not want to see me.’

She added: ‘Closure is what I’m looking for. It would be nice to know if he is dead or alive.’

Lupton is thought to have been part of the gang which targeted the giant Securitas warehouse, which employed 80 people, sorting out old and new banknotes for distribution to cash machines and banks all over south-east England.

Gang members tied up 14 night shift workers at gunpoint after adducting the depot manager, together with his wife and daughter, and using him to gain access to the giant warehouse just 330 yards from Tonbridge police station.

The gang escaped with £53m which they loaded on to a 7.5 ton lorry during the 66 minute raid, but they were forced to leave behind £154m as they could not transport it.

Police later recovered £21m of the stolen cash, finding bundles of cash in a shipping container and a lockup garage, but £32m is still said to be missing.

Lupton was arrested nine months after the robbery in a dawn raid at his home in Whitstable, Kent, and was quizzed before being freed on bail.

Two weeks later he left his home as normal, telling his family he was going to work, and never
