Rachael says she is madly in love with him but we hope this is the end of it; Relief of runaway girl's dad.

Byline: EXCLUSIVE by NICOLA LUDVIGSEN

THE dad of runaway schoolgirl Rachael Lloyd, separated by police from her Turkish lover, said yesterday: "We just hope it's all over."

The couple were parted 10 days ago after being found living in barman Mehmet Ocack's home town of Gazi Antep in eastern Turkey.

Charity worker Bob Lloyd, 42, said: "Rachel has not been able to get through to Mehmet since she came home.

"She still says she is madly in love him but he is not contactable on any of his phone numbers.

"He has not tried to get in touch with her and I just hope he has seen sense and has decided to leave Rachel alone. We can only hope it's all over now."

Rachael, 14, met 24-year-old barman Ocack, in Marmaris in the summer and they were engaged in October.

She was flown home and her passport confiscated but Rachael forged new documents and jetted back to her lover.

The pair were found after the Welsh Daily Mirror exclusively revealed their story and Ocack arrested on child sex charges.

As he was being led away by police, married Ocack proposed to his young girlfriend.

"You want married?" was the last thing Rachael heard him say before flying home to Wrexham, north Wales, with her dad.

But the teenager has yet to hear from Ocack who promised to stay in touch.

He has not returned her phone calls or text messages.

Rachel tried to contact him within hours of their separation but he was not answering.

Tearful Rachel said: "I tried his mobile time and time again. I texted him but he didn't call back. I miss him so much."

Bob has decided not to press charges against Ocack hoping to erase him from her life.

He is so concerned because it appears love sick Rachael will go to any lengths to be with him.

She forged a passport to return to Turkey almost four weeks ago before the pair were found following her family's desperate call to the Welsh Daily Mirror.

On the flight home from Gazi Antep she said: "All I want is to be with him. I won't be happy until I am.

"I don't feel guilty about running away because it's what I want.

"I know people think I'm mad but I'm in love with him."
