Jiang, sold the one-year-old to a couple after owing more than 60,000 Yuan (£6,798), according to reports in China.

Jiang told his wife that he was taking their daughter to stay with his mother. He flew the child more than 1,150 miles away from their home in Guiyang, Guizhou province, last November.

Wang, his wife grew concerned after his failure to return three months later but repeatedly postponed their return.

In February, 2019, she checked her husband’s phone and found shocking conversations between her husband and her daughter’s buyers.

Wang went to her husband’s mother in Zunyi city, about 87 miles away, who informed her that her son and granddaughter left her weeks ago.

She immediately contacted police and they tracked Jiang down to a hotel in Guiyang last month.

When he was caught, Jiang admitted to owing a huge gambling debt and decided to take the drastic measure after seeing online adverts for child adoption.
