Police hunt mother, 14, on run with baby
Wednesday 08 September 2010
A 14-year-old girl has gone on the run with her ex-boyfriend and their 11-month-old daughter, police said today.
Tinishya Marshall disappeared with 11-month-old Sophie and they are believed to be in the company of Howard Norman - the little girl's 16-year-old father.
Concerned friends and relatives have set up Facebook groups appealing for Tinishya to get in touch and have printed posters pleading for information.
Tinishya's mother Liz Marshall begged her daughter to get in touch.
"Tinishya we miss u loads please please contact us so we know u and sophie are ok xx we love u babygirl and missy moo," she wrote on the social networking site.
Avon and Somerset Police said Tinishya went missing from the Greystoke Avenue area of Southmead, Bristol, on September 3.
She told people she was going out to the shops and took her daughter in a pink pram.
A relative who spoke to her at the time reminded her that Sophie's feed was due. At 3.30pm mother and daughter were spotted in Greystoke Avenue but have not been seen since.
Tinishya is described as a white, 5ft 2in, of heavy build with dark brown shoulder length hair which is usually tied up.
When last seen, she was wearing a black velour tracksuit with a white top underneath.
Her daughter was wearing a red velour tracksuit.
A force spokesman said: "There is growing concern about the welfare of the baby as none of the child's belongings or change of clothes were taken, except for her pink pram.
"It is possible that she was maybe with another man who has also gone missing at the same time and is known to her."
Officers believe Tinishya and Sophie may be in the Devon area.
Howard is described as white and aged 16.
He is 5ft 5in, with short mousy brown hair and was wearing black tracksuit bottoms, a white T-shirt and white trainers.
