Breakthrough in hunt for missing mum Constance Marten 'with royal links' who vanished with baby and partner Mark Gordon | The Sun

COPS have revealed a major breakthrough in the hunt for a missing mum who vanished with her partner and their newborn baby.

Constance Marten, Mark Gordon and their baby vanished after their car broke down on the M61 last week.

Now, detectives have confirmed the pair were spotted in Newham, East London, two days later.

Cops fear 35-year-old Constance had "very recently" given birth, adding that "neither she nor the baby have been assessed by medical professionals".

The mum is the granddaughter of Mary Anna Marten – whose godmother was the late Queen Mother, it is believed.

Her family used to own the Crichel Estate near Wimborne in Dorset.

This is the last known sighting.

The couple's have been missing since their car broke down near junction four of the M61 near Bolton.

It is understood they walked away from the scene.

They were earlier spotted in Essex – firstly near to Harwich Port on Saturday at 9am – and then again in Colchester around an hour later.

Detective Superintendent Lewis Basford said: "It has now been more than a week since Constance and Mark’s car broke down on the M61, and we are growing increasingly concerned not only for their welfare, but for the welfare of their newborn child.

"Being on the move for a week must be exhausting for new parents and a newborn baby.

"Constance and Mark, I appeal directly to you, please think of your baby’s health and wellbeing and get in touch with us so we can ensure your child is medically well and has no underlying issues.

"Please do this for your child.

"You wouldn’t be able to forgive yourself if they became poorly. All we want to do is help you and your baby.

"This is a fast-moving investigation and we have a number of officers from across the Met carrying out urgent enquiries to find Constance, Mark and their baby.

"The help from members of the public has been invaluable over the past week.

"I would appeal to anyone who believes they have seen Constance, Mark or their new-born baby – either in London or further afield – to contact us without delay.

"Together we can ensure they and their new-born baby are safe and well."
