A MOTHER and her young baby who went missing from Wantage have now been found. 

Police had appealed for help in tracing 18-year-old Eleanor Grillo, known as Ellie, who was last seen at around 8.30am yesterday in Wantage with her 13-week-old baby Miya.

Investigating officer Sergeant Hailey Goodwin, of the Investigation Hub based at Abingdon police station, had said the force was 'growing increasingly concerned for Ellie'.

Officers have now confirmed that the pair were located 'safe and well' earlier today, and thanked the public for sharing the appeal to find her.
