Constance Marten: Missing Couple Found but Newborn Baby Still Missing

Sussex police have located Constance Marten and Mark Gordon, a couple who disappeared with their newborn baby, in Stanmer Villas in Brighton. However, the search for the infant continues as they have not received any medical attention since birth in early January. The Metropolitan police have launched an urgent search operation to locate the missing baby.

Marten and Gordon have been traveling around the UK by taxi since their car was found burning on the M61 in Bolton, Greater Manchester, on January 5th. Despite efforts to trace the couple, they managed to evade the authorities by moving frequently and keeping their faces covered by CCTV.

Who is Constance Marten in search of the missing baby?

Marten, who is from a wealthy aristocratic family with connections to the royal family, met Gordon in 2016. Gordon had served 20 years in a US jail for rape and battery for an attack on a woman when he was 14 and was deported to Britain from the US in 2010. Since 2016, the couple has led an isolated life, cut off from family and friends, and have been living in a series of Airbnbs around the country on short lets.

Taxi drivers used by the couple in the first few days after they went missing said they had heard noises coming from a baby. The couple traveled from Bolton to Liverpool, Harwich in Essex, East London, and then to Newhaven in Sussex, where they were seen near the ferry port on January 8th.

In late January, police offered a £10,000 reward for information leading to the couple’s whereabouts. Officers expressed extreme concern for the health and well-being of the newborn baby, as they may have been exposed to sub-zero temperatures for almost a month.

Who is Constance Marten?

The identity of Constance Marten has been a topic of interest lately. According to a report by The Independent, Constance has direct lineage to the 3rd and final Baron Allington and previously resided in the luxurious Crichel country house in Dorset, valued at £34 million.

Her grandparents, Mary Anna, and Toby Marten had strong ties to the royal family. Toby was a Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy, while Mary Anna had close connections to the monarchy. In addition, Constance’s father, Napier Marten, was a prominent film and music producer and had the distinction of serving as a page to Queen Elizabeth II.

Constance’s educational background includes Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Leeds, as well as a qualification in journalism from NCTJ. However, she harbored a deep interest in acting and attended the East 15 drama school in Essex before ultimately dropping out in 2016.

Marten’s estranged father, Napier Marten, a film and music producer, made a public appeal to his daughter to hand herself into the police in mid-January. Constance Marten grew up in the Dorset estate of Crichel House. Her grandmother was a playmate to Princess Margaret, and her father was once a page to Queen Elizabeth II. The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is urged to come forward.

According to a report by BBC News, the couple had left their residence in Eltham, located in south-east London, in September when Constance began to display signs of pregnancy. They had been living a nomadic lifestyle since then and were traveling around the UK in a taxi after their car was found burning on the M61 in Bolton, Greater Manchester, on January 5. Investigators believe that the baby was most likely born during this period, and has not received any medical attention since then.

As per the Evening Standard, Constance belongs to one of England’s most prominent aristocratic households. An aristocrat is a member of the highest class in certain societies. Typically, aristocrats are people of noble birth who hold hereditary titles and offices. The Marten family has several connections to the royal family and the British army, and therefore, falls under this category.
