Police are trying to contact a Northampton man who is the boyfriend of missing Katie Kelly and also the father of their missing baby girl.

Katie Kelly, 15, from Long Buckby, was last seen on Tuesday in Northampton and police revealed today that they have been unable to contact her 18-year-old boyfriend, Karl Boyle - who is the father of the baby girl, called Kiah-Mae - since she went missing.

Police also revealed that Tuesday’s sighting of Katie was at about 7.30pm in the Standens Barn area of Northampton where she was spotted by a friend with her baby, Kiah-Mae.

DCI Elliot Foskett, the lead investigator said Mr Boyle is from Northampton.

Making a direct appeal to Katie, he said: “Katie, I know you are probably scared, but I want to reassure you that we just want to make sure both you and Kiah-Mae are safe.”

Katie apparently called a taxi to an address in Corby on Tuesday but did not turn up. It was after this that she was spotted in Standens Barn.

DCI Foskett said she had been missing before - the last time was January - but never with Kiah-Mae.

He said her disappearance seemed unplanned because she did not take any money, formula milk or nappies.

He also added that none of the 12 detectives working on the case had uncovered any evidence that Katie and Mr Boyle were together.

DCI Foskett added: “At this stage there is no evidence to suggest Katie or her daughter are in any immediate danger, however, it is vital that we find them as soon as possible.”

Katie is described at 5ft 7ins, slim build, long, dark brown, straight hair and green eyes.

She was wearing a diamond effect bracelet and gold locket. She had black leggings on, a white t-shirt and trainers
