The family is believed to have crossed the border into Syria soon after arriving in neighbouring nation of Turkey in May 2015. two months after their arrival in Syria, the family had released a statement declaring their support for the Islamic State and their happiness at being in a land which is free from corruption and oppression of man-made law and is governed by Shariah.

Mannan's son Shalim, from a previous marriage responded from the family's home town in Luton, "They are all dead. It's over, finished. We had been trying to find out for some time what had happened to them and it was only confirmed to us recently from Syria."
