Bristol Mumsnetters,

Charlotte Bevan and her four day old baby have gone missing from a central Bristol maternity unit and haven't been seen for over 12 hours. PLEASE keep an eye out for her and phone the police if you see her - she's white, around 5'8, dark hair, wearing a black top, black trousers and hospital slippers or flip flops. Her baby is wrapped in a stripey blanket.

Hoping and praying for a safe return sad

I hope they are found safe too, its on my mind & I'm not sure why but I keep thinking of her.

Still no news. Can't get her out of my mind.

Sorry to see there's still no news.

(I've also bumped the threads in AIBU and chat)

I feel the same way, Jsa. I want to open my door and welcome them into the warmth and tell her they'll be safe here. sad

Jsa1980 Wed 03-Dec-14 23:08:09

Jsa1980 Wed 03-Dec-14 23:09:21

Oh my they've found a body in the Avon Gorge

VerityWaves Wed 03-Dec-14 23:10:18

SagaNorensSnowflakeTrousers Wed 03-Dec-14 23:25:27

Heart-breaking.

sad I just hope she left her baby somewhere safe.

Poor woman.

Brings a tear to my eye. Especially with the other story this week about a newborn found dead in a wheelie bin. Hope the baby is found somewhere but to be honest I don't think it's that likely surely if she was going to do that she would have left the baby in the hospital.

Sadly I just got a SKY news alert to say a body of a baby girl was found close to where the ladies body was found. How desperately sad for everyone involved.

Is this thought to be the same mother and baby? I read a story involving a vicar, and a woman called Ruth? (regarding the body in Avon Gorge)

slightlyworriednc Thu 04-Dec-14 17:15:03

My apologies, I've read it again and they seem to have identified her. So sad.

I bloody hate Clifton Suspension Bridge. It's a magnet for people with MH issues.

InfinitySeven Thu 04-Dec-14 17:33:43

They found her baby, too. The man on the news can hardly speak.

RIP, to both of them. They're in my thoughts.

tanyatanya Thu 04-Dec-14 21:47:14

This is an unspeakable tragedy but the way the blame and fingers start getting pointed at staff who we all know are notoriously underpaid, aggressively managed and understaffed is actually abominable.

Successive govs have promised to boost funding for natal care and they have just merrily not done it.

Let's lay photos of Charlotte and her tiny baby at Government doors and the departments where promises are made "the nhs is safe in our hands" and then broken immediately.
