Essex Police have appealed for a mother with a young five-month-old baby to get in touch, as they attempt to find her partner following the death of a man in Chemsford.
Kay Phillips is thought to be travelling with her partner Richard Frost, who officers want to question after a teenager was hit by a car and then stabbed.
– Detective Chief Inspector Mark Hall, Essex Police
I am becoming increasingly concerned for the wellbeing and safety of Kay and the baby.
I believe Kay to be a loving and caring mother, but she is currently in circumstances where she has no access to money, has no stable environment and lacks the support of her family.
Her family are deeply concerned and wish her to make contact with police at the earliest opportunity. I would appeal to Kay to go with the baby to her nearest police station.
Police investigating an alleged attempted murder are searching for a 35-year-old man.
Richard Frost is believed to have been at the scene of an incident in Chelmsford, Essex, earlier this month when a 17-year-old boy was allegedly run down by a BMW car and then stabbed twice.
Mr Frost is thought to be travelling in East Anglia with his partner Kay Phillips, 26, and their five-month old son.
Police say Mr Frost has a leg injury and may be using crutches.
He's 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build and has pierced ears and tattoos on his hands.
Miss Phillips is about 5ft 4in tall, with blue eyes and shoulder-length or long dyed blonde hair.
Police are urging members of the public to come forward with any information by calling 0800 0961233 or 0207 1580197
