Heartwarming photos have surfaced of a toddler meeting her Australian family after being found barefoot in a church in Mexico.

Two-year-old Adelynn was found alone outside the chapel in Cancun on May 3 as authorities searched for her mother Tahnee Shanks, 32, and father Jorge Aguirre Estudillo, who have both been reported missing.

Ben Shanks, little Adelynn’s uncle and Grandma Leanne, had flown from Queensland to Mexico to take her home.

On Thursday, the toddler first met other family members, including cousins, in Mackay, Queensland, after landing safely in Australia.

Tahnee’s other brother Dan Shanks said it was a relief to know Adelynn was safe.

“It’s bittersweet, but it’s something,” he told the… courier post.

“Now I can focus 100 percent on Tahnee.”

The Shanks family say they won’t give up looking for Tahnee.

An image of a burned-out van on the side of the road in Mexico has now surfaced, with the van allegedly being held as evidence in the case.

Mexican police have also seized a video of a woman being forced into a van and investigating whether it is related to Ms Shanks’ disappearance.

Police are reportedly investigating whether Ms Shanks and her missing partner Mr Estudillo were targeted by criminals in a random attack.

Adelynn had previously been cared for by the Mexican child welfare authorities before her relatives arrived. She got an Australian emergency passport.
