Airports on alert after mother has vanished with two sons
Samantha Baldwin, 42, from Newark, was last seen in Nottingham city centre on Monday, but also has family connections to Lincolnshire and Manchester.
She is believed to be with nine-year-old Louis Madge and six-year-old Dylan Madge, Nottinghamshire Police said. The force said it was "seriously concerned" for the welfare of all three members of the family. Supt Rich Fretwell said detectives had carried out searches of properties, studied CCTV footage and used number plate recognition technology. He said: "We can't underestimate the importance of the information the public can give us.
"If they have any knowledge or heard any rumours about where Samantha and the boys may be then please get in touch." Ms Baldwin is described as being 5ft 7ins (1.7m) tall of a slim build with shoulder length, highlighted blonde hair and green/blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a red knee length coat from Mango, but may have changed her clothing since. Louis is described as having fair hair, a fair complexion and blue eyes and Dylan has straight dark brown hair, a tanned complexion and brown eyes. The two boys also use the surname of Taylor, police said.
