Missing People: Austin Edwards, Kayleigh Jones and their newborn baby

Ausitn Edwards and Kayleigh Jones
Ausitn Edwards and Kayleigh Jones are missing with their newborn son.

Police are concerned for the welfare of a couple and their newborn son after they went missing from Wales last month.

While the couple are from outside the area, they have been seen in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire in recent days.

Kayleigh Jones and Austin Edwards went missing on 14 June, but Kayleigh is believed to have given birth to a boy only a few days ago.

Officers are extremely concerned for the baby’s welfare.

Kayleigh Jones is 5′ 5”, medium build with shoulder-length brown hair. Austin Edwards is 5’11”, slim and has short brown hair.

Kayleigh is understood to have been in the Leighton Buzzard or Dunstable area, but has not been seen since yesterday evening (Saturday). It’s thought they could also be in nearby towns.

Kayleigh and Austin are urged to contact police just to confirm all three are safe and well.

Anybody in Bedfordshire who has seen them should call 101 quoting incident 380 of 1 July.
