The Metropolitan Police and Waltham Forest Council are now extremely concerned for the safety of a missing woman and her four-month baby.

Taiwo Martins and her baby have been missing from the Leyton area since Tuesday 7 November 2017.

As there is cold weather forecast there is real concern for their wellbeing.

Taiwo is described a black female with short dark hair. She is around 5ft 6in tall, and of slim build. She may be wearing a traditional Nigerian head-dress, known as gele, and robes. At the time of her disappearance she had a black and maroon coloured baby buggy with her.

She is known to frequent the Walthamstow area

Taiwo is known to be a practicing Ahayah’s witness.

Detective Inspector Karen Knibbs, said: "We are keen to make contact with Taiwo to make sure that she and her four-month-old son, who is yet to be registered are health, well and safe.

"With the temperature set to drop over the next few weeks, we really want to find both Taiwo and her son and bring them home safely."

There is growing concern for her and her son's wellbeing and we urge anyone with information on their whereabouts to call police on 101 or Missing People on 116000
