Constance Marten disappeared with her partner and their newborn baby after their vehicle broke down on a motorway in north-west England between Manchester and Preston. The woman is part of the Marten family, an aristocratic British family with links to the Queen Mother, who owned the Crichel estate in Dorset, reports The Independent.

Marten, 35, is the granddaughter of Mary Anna Marten, a curator at the British Museum whose godmother was the late Queen Mother. Marten is descended from the third and last Baron Allington.

Marten, her partner Mark Gordon and their child were last seen on Thursday evening after their car broke down on the M61, at which point they safely left the road and walked to Anchor Lane Bridge, near Bolton.

Since then, the new mother is believed to have been caught on CCTV in the Essex port of Harwich, around 250 miles (400 kilometers) from where their car was abandoned, and later in Colchester, it was announced on Sunday British police.

Police in Manchester launched an appeal for the public’s help on Friday to find Marten, 35, her partner, 48, and the child.

Police have since released a CCTV image, taken near Harwich Harbor at 9am on Sunday, of her wearing a large red scarf. Marten is also believed to have been seen around an hour later near Colchester.

When last seen near the M61, Mr Gordon was wearing dark clothing and the child was swaddled.

“As a mother, I’d like to make a direct appeal to Constance: I know this is an exceptionally difficult time for you and you’re probably scared, but I promise you that our number one priority is the same as yours – as your newborn yours be safe. As you know, it is very important to be assessed by doctors as soon as possible, so please contact the emergency services or go to the nearest hospital, wherever that may be. I would also like to appeal to members of the public, not just in Bolton, but in Greater Manchester and beyond,” said Chief Superintendent Michaela Kerr, head of public protection at Greater Manchester Police.
