Ink smears on leather sofa

DH has somehow managed to get blue biro ink smeared all over the dark brown leather sofa (no idea how this has happened and worryingly neither of us have found the culprit pen as of yet confused) - it looks a right mess. Google has had me trying the following remedies - nail varnish remover (started taking off the leather), baby wipes, milk, kitchen cleaner - all have very slightly faded the pen however it is still very much there....any more suggestions please?!

I use aftershave/perfume - I believe it is the alcohol in it that removes it.

Hairspray got ink out of one of my tops.

A quick spray of Vanish will do the trick. My littles ones are always dropping stuff on the sofas lol messy buggers.

WD40 worked for me in a similar situation. Spray it on the biro marks and rub with a dry cloth.
