A mum from Liverpool has vanished with her two young sons.

Rebecca Collins, 36, was last seen on Sunday. No-one has heard from her since.

She is with her children: Alfie, 4, and Archie, 3.

Detectives are deeply concerned about all of them.

Inspector Georgina Minery said: "I would like to appeal directly to Rebecca and ask her simply to get in touch with the police or a relative to let someone know she and her boys are safe and well."

"Rebecca is not in any trouble and has not done anything wrong but her disappearance is so out of character and unusual, people are understandably worried."
