A missing mother has been found "safe" with her two sons, Nottinghamshire police said.

Samantha Baldwin, 40, went missing on 27 March with her sons Dylan, six, and Louis, nine.

A team of 100 officers were involved in the search and a Europe-wide alert was issued.

"They are now with officers and are safe. Thank you for your support in this matter," Nottinghamshire police said.

The force had appealed for Ms Baldwin to get in touch and said there had been no direct sightings of the trio since the missing persons inquiry was launched.

Police said the inquiry was focused on Newark, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Manchester.

Two women, aged 62 and 36, who were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender have been released on bail.
