Police have launched an urgent appeal to find a nine-week-old baby who went missing with her father from Walsall, West Midlands, this morning.

Stuart Adams, 30, left his partner's home with baby Lana-Mai and has not been seen since.

Officers were called to Prince Street in Pleck at around 2.20am.

According to local news, police have searched several addresses known to Mr Adams, but have found no trace.

He is 5ft 7in tall, wearing blue jeans, blue jacket. white T-shirt and white trainers.

Lana-Mai was wearing a pink babygrow with press-studs down the front with a ballerina design. She was wrapped in a peach and cream blanket.

Chief Inspector Sue Parker, from Walsall Police, said: "We are very concerned for Lana-Mai's welfare as she is so young and we understand her departure from the family home was not planned.

"Stuart did take some formula and bottles but we are concerned that she has not got clothes and other essential items that such a young baby requires.

"We know that Stuart had been drinking earlier in the night and that also gives us cause for concern.

"We urge anyone who knows of their whereabouts to contact us as soon as possible so we can reunite Lana-Mai with her concerned mother and make sure that she is safe and well."

Anyone with information should call Walsall Police on 101.
