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.
