Missing Nottingham mother poses 'risk of harm' to sons, court says

From The Guardian:

A woman suspected of abducting her two young sons poses a risk of harm to them, a family court has said.

Nottingham family court said it had ordered that Dylan Madge, six, and Louis Madge, nine, should be removed from the care of their mother, Samantha Baldwin, on Monday.

The 42-year-old was last seen near Nottingham city centre that day, although a missing persons appeal was launched on Tuesday after she vanished with her sons. On Wednesday, police announced the investigation had become an abduction inquiry.

In a statement Nottingham family court said: “It is assumed that she has abducted Louis and Dylan. The children have now been made wards of court. Miss Baldwin is considered to pose a risk of harm to the children.”

On Friday, Nottinghamshire police’s Supt Rich Fretwell said officers were growing increasingly concerned for the children’s welfare and safety.

I hope that this mother gets the maximum penalty for what she did. Only a fit mother is deserving of her children.
