Concerns are growing for a 15-year-old girl and her baby son who have been missing for five days.
Romanian-born Catalina Covaci and six-month-old Ricardi were last seen leaving her home in Penrith, Cumbria, when she told her guardians she was going into the town centre.
She has lived in the country for 18 months but has family and associates across the UK including Manchester, Oldham, Glasgow, Hull and London.
Police have discovered that she was on a train bound for Manchester Piccadilly on Wednesday afternoon.
Detectives are particularly interested to establish whether Catalina and her son were travelling with anyone else and are appealing to witnesses to come forward.
Catalina is described as having very long straight hair that was dyed red the last time she was seen.
She often wears her hair in a bun, is of slim build and was last seen wearing a leopard print skirt, fake leather coat and black boots. However she is believed to have taken clothes for herself and Ricardi with her.
