Police desperately searching for missing teen mum and her baby

Police hold grave concerns for a teenage mother and her one-day-old baby have gone missing from a Melbourne hospital.

17-year-old Amanda Clay and her newborn daughter Phoebe were last seen at the Northern Hospital about 3.30pm yesterday and need urgent medical attention.

Police were called to the hospital when Phoebe was taken by people known to the Clay family just hours after she was born, while Amanda left the hospital of her own accord.


Medical staff at the hospital fear Phoebe is not feeding properly and have grave concerns for her welfare.
