ACT Policing urgently want to discover the whereabouts of a three-month-old baby girl and her father Nicholas.

UPDATE: 10 May, 12 pm – Great news! The missing three-month-old baby girl has been located safe and well.

A high level, urgent amber alert has been issued for a missing three-month-old baby girl.

ACT Policing is seeking the public’s assistance to locate a three-month-old baby girl and her 26-year-old father Nicholas Watson who were last seen on Tuesday morning (7 May 2019) in Scullin.

While he has lawful custody of the child, Nicholas’ family has been unable to contact him and police are concerned for the welfare of Nicholas and his baby.

Nicholas is described as Caucasian in appearance, with a solid build, red hair, green eyes and freckles.

He has a tattoo located on the back of his neck of a rose with the letters C and M on either side of the rose.

An amber alert is reserved for high-risk missing person cases where time is vital, or in a child abduction case. The alert was first used last August when six-year-old Phoenix Mapham was taken by his mother and later found after an extensive search.

Anyone who may have any information that could assist police is asked to contact ACT Policing on 131 444. Please quote reference 6394576. Information can be provided anonymously.
