Police are trying to trace a baby who has been taken from her foster carer by her natural parents.
Charlie Collins, aged 19 and 17-year-old Nicole Harper both of Princess Elizabeth Way in Cheltenham took 2-month-old Lily May Collins from her foster carer from an address on Gardners Lane in Cheltenham at around 10.25 this morning (October 16).
Nicole and Charlie were both seen pushing a black pushchair near to The Range on Tewkesbury Road at around that time. It is believed that the two may have, or plan to leave Cheltenham by bus or train.
We’re extremely worried for the welfare of Lilly May as although we don’t believe that Nicole or Charlie will hurt her, they may not have any food for the baby and there are concerns around their ability to look after her.

Cheltenham's great diamond hunt has finished with all ten gems successfully found by eager competitors for the charity event. A total of £10,000 worth of diamonds were hidden across the spa town by luxury jeweller Beards to help raise money for local cancer charity Maggie's Cancer Care Centre.
The first diamond was found within 10 minutes of the Diamond Rush kicking off and the last was uncovered at 1.34pm, hidden in the underground car park at The Montpellier Chapter.
One Cheltenham couple, who found the diamond in 131 The Promenade, heightened the emotion of the day with a marriage proposal. Builder Scott Thompson, 27, got down on one knee to ask his girlfriend Lucienne Simpson, 26, to marry him.
“It has been an amazing and rather emotional day which has not only raised a huge amount for Maggie’s but has also changed lives of people taking part. The people who have found the diamonds have been over the moon, and this was simply topped with one of the lucky finders popping the question to his girlfriend.”
After three hours of hunting through various locations in Cheltenham, Scott Thompson found a diamond on the bushes at the 131 restaurant. Shortly afterwards he proposed to his girlfriend Lucienne Simpson who gracefully accepted.
The couple have been together for six years and Lucienne says they would never have afforded a diamond ring. The owner of the jewellers who donated the gems was so touched he has agreed to pay for the diamond to be set in a ring.
Ten diamonds had been hidden around the town with clues being sold to raise money for a local charity, Maggies which supports cancer patients and their families.
