After police issued an appeal for information amid growing fears for the wellbeing of a mother who disappeared with her two young children, she has now been found safe and well.
Officers say she and her two youngsters will now be spending Christmas at home after they were found just hours before Christmas Day. Forty five year old Angela Lambert was reported missing nine days ago, along with her son Cyrus, six, and Maryam, two.
Police launched an appeal to find them because of concerns about their welfare. Thankfully, all three have been found safe and well. The family are from Luton in Bedfordshire. No futher details have been released about the circumstances of their disappearance, or where they have been for the past few days.
All three had not been seen until 11.30 on December 15, but have now been reported to be safe and well after being found on Christmas Eve. Issuing an appeal, PC Lesley Horton from the Bedfordshire Police force had said that she was very concerned for the welfare of Angela and her two children. She urged them or anyone with information to get in touch with officers straight away so police were able to determine if they were okay.
The last time they had been seen was boarding a bus from Luton to Stevenage together last Thursday. The mother was understood to have used a number of differeny aliases. Police officers said they were using “all available resources” to try to find Angela and her youngsters as they were growing increasingly worried about them. Officers said that they wanted to get the family home in time for Christmas, and now they have announced that they have managed to do just that. Every year, around 300,000 Britons go missing. Thankfully, for the Lamberts, there was a happy ending.
