Police are in desperate search of a seven days old baby Graham who was start seen on Thursday, 29 April.
The child referred to as “Baby Graham” is with her parents, Azara and Machel Graham.
In the afternoon of 29 April, staff advised the parents that Baby Graham had symptoms consistent with a serious respiratory condition.
The parents disappeared with the baby after they were informed that the baby needed to be taken to A&E for an urgent assessment.
After the routine post-natal appointment, the parents are yet to be seen, and police are worried about the baby’s condition.
Investigators have launched high risk missing person investigations.
Police said its officers had visited the parents’ home address in Southwark a number of times in the last 24 hours.
Detective Chief Inspector Lucy O’Connor, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of Baby Graham. Her parents have not followed the medical advice they were given and, in doing so, could be putting her health at risk.
“There will be a time and a place to explore their reasons, but right now, our priority has to be the safety of this very young baby.
“While we would of course ask the public to keep an eye out for Baby Graham’s parents, we believe it’s likely they are being accommodated by relatives or associates.
“I would urge those people to put the welfare of this tiny baby girl above any other loyalty they may have and get in touch with the police.
“I would also appeal directly to Azara and Machel to do the right thing and to go to the nearest A&E so that Baby Graham can get the care she needs.”
Anyone with useful information about Baby Graham is advised to call 999, providing the reference 21MIS011809 or call officers on 101
