And, according to the Manchester Evening News, the woman's family own land in Dorset and have “ties” with the Royal Family – although it is not yet clear exactly what those ties are.
Chief Inspector Rob Huddleston, of Essex Police, who is assisting Greater Manchester Police with the search, said: “Clearly, the overriding concern that we share with our colleagues at Greater Manchester Police is for Mark and Constance’s new-born child.
“We do not wish to interrupt their family life; this search is primarily to ensure the welfare of the couple’s child.
“We are carrying out a number of enquires in and around Colchester in order to locate them.
“We’re also liaising with colleagues at British Transport Police around potential onward travel from Colchester.
“I would ask the people of Colchester, and indeed wider north Essex, to please familiarise yourself with Mark and Constance’s faces and report any sightings to us immediately.”

The car was abandoned at around 6.30pm near junction four of the M61 at Farnworth.
It has been claimed that the car was only bought around six days ago, and that the baby had been born “very recently”.
GMP has said that the family left the motorway on foot, and walked to Anchor Lane Bridge, but there has been sightings of them in north Essex – 250 miles away.
