Detective Inspector Furzana Nazir is coordinating the search for Catalina: She said: “We are really worried about the welfare of Catalina due to her age, the fact she has her baby son with her and has very little money.
“She is vulnerable due to her age and we need to ensure her and her son are both ok. We have contacted colleagues in neighbouring forces and are appealing to the people of Cumbria to look carefully at her photograph and call us if they believe they’ve seen her.
“There is suggestion she may have been trying to contact some connections she has in Manchester or the Oldham area or may even be attempting to leave the country.
