On January 6 and January 7, the pair were spotted around Colchester, where they took another cab and made their way to East Ham station in East London.

It is also believed the family have no luggage with them after most of their belongings were destroyed in the car fire.

Detective Superintendent Lewis Basford, who is leading the investigation, said: “It has now almost been two weeks since Mark and Constance’s car broke down on the M61 near Bolton and they have been on the move all that time with a newborn baby.

“As far as we are aware, neither Constance nor the baby have received medical attention since it was born. Our priority is to ensure the baby, and indeed both Constance and Mark, are safe and well.

“Once again, I appeal directly to you Constance, and Mark. Please do the right thing for your baby and get in touch with us so that we know that you are all doing okay.”
