UPDATE: Missing Yarmouth mum and baby found safe and well

Police searching for a missing Great Yarmouth mum and her five-day-old baby daughter and partner can confirm all have been located safe and well.

Catherine Hicks-Isaac, 25, disappeared yesterday, the same day she left the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston where she gave birth to her little girl, Andrea.

Also known as Cathy, she had gone from hospital to meet social services staff in Great Yarmouth to discuss what police described as 'issues around Andrea'.

Officers said they believed that meeting might have upset her and caused her to disappear. They believed the pair might be with Andrea's father Duncan Caine.

As a result of enquiries police attended an address in Hanworth, in north Norfolk, shortly after midnight where 25-year-old Catherine Hicks-Isaac, five-day-old Andrea and 31-year-old Mr Caine were found.
