COPS searching for a missing mum have found her toddler and newborn baby 90 miles away – as she is still missing.
Jamie-Leigh Kelly left a Family Assessment Centre in north west London, on Tuesday with her three-year-old daughter and baby boy, who was only born in September.
The mum walked out of the centre, in Colindale, around 7.40pm with her two kids, who are under care orders and should have stayed there, say police.
Staff were unable to stop Jamie-Leigh from leaving and bundling the youngsters into a blue Ford Fiesta.
The children have today been found at an address in Harwich, Essex – but Jamie-Leigh was not there and is still missing.
She is described as white with green eyes, of slim build and 5ft 4ins tall.
The youngsters were both taken to hospital as a precaution before they were put into police protection, say cops.
A 63-year-old woman was arrested at the address on suspicion of child abduction, assisting an offender and perverting the course of justice.
She remains in custody at an east London police station.
Another woman and a man were arrested earlier this week following the family’s disappearance.
Ashley Hawkins, 52, of Dagenham, and Jordan Hardy, 30, also of, Dagenham, were both charged with two counts of child abduction.
They will appear at Southend Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
Detective Superintendent Lewis Basford said: “We are very pleased, and of course relieved, to have found the two children after an extensive enquiries over the past few days.
“They are safe and well and receiving precautionary medical attention.
“Jamie-Leigh was not present and our work to locate her continues. I urge anyone who may have helped facilitate the movement of the children, or who may be assisting Jamie-Leigh with transport or accommodation, to come forward to police now. Call 999 or go to a police station immediately.
“Jamie-Leigh, I continue my direct appeal to you to contact us. We are asking you to please pick up the phone and have a conversation with us so we can meet with you.
“Please contact us on 020 7175 0793 or go to a police station as quickly as possible.”
