COPS are frantically hunting for a mum who has gone missing with her two kids.
Charlene Clayton, 35, took her kids Carter and Callum, both four, from their guardian’s house in Walthamstow, North-East London, on Monday afternoon and has not been seen since.
The mum visited Carter and Callum, both aged four, at a residential property in Acacia Road where they are cared for by a guardian yesterday afternoon.
The 35-year-old left the property in Acacia Road with the children to visit a nearby shop, however she didn’t return and police were called shortly before 5.20pm.
Officers launched an urgent investigation and have been carrying out a number of enquiries.
It is thought Charlene has travelled to the Chingford area.
Detective Constable Amy Campion, from the local policing team in Waltham Forest, disse: “We are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of Charlene and her two children and we are keen to make contact with her to confirm they are all safe and well.
“Charlene was in contact with the childrens’ guardian after she left the house, but this contact has since stopped.
“I also understand this incident will cause concern within the community, however I would like to reassure the public that we do not believe there to be any wider risk.
“We are carrying out a range of enquiries but we do need to hear from anyone who has information about Charlene’s whereabouts and I’d also asks that people in the Walthamstow and Chingford areas keep an eye out for her and report any possible sightings to police by calling 999.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police quoting CAD 5254/12Sep.
