British police concerned for welfare of new mum who walked out of hospital where she had just given birth
British police have said they are seriously concerned for the welfare of a new mum who walked out of a hospital where she had just given birth.
Police issued an appeal for information after Anna Chudy (35) left Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow, north-west London, with a man on Friday morning.
Ms Chudy had given birth to a healthy baby boy by caesarean section at around 3.40am on Thursday.
At around 10.30am on Friday she left the hospital and left her child behind, Scotland Yard said.
Officers have released CCTV images of Ms Chudy along with the man, both seen separately exiting the Accident and Emergency department of Northwick Park Hospital.
Ms Chudy is described as white, possibly Eastern European, with pale skin, of medium build, 5ft 4ins in height, with bleached blonde fine hair in a pony tail.
The man is described as white, with short dark brown hair. He is tall with an athletic build and he was wearing a black leather jacket with patches on the elbow and dark trousers.
Detective Sergeant Adrian Smith from Brent CID said: “This is a vulnerable woman who needs to be located as soon as possible so she can be reunited with her baby boy.
“We are not looking to trace her with the intention of pursuing any criminal matters against her. Our only concern is her safe return.
“It is of paramount importance that anyone who has any information about her whereabouts contacts us immediately.”
