COPS have launched a desperate hunt for the parents of a newborn baby girl in need of hospital treatment.
The child, who police have referred to as “Baby Graham”, is believed to be with parents Azara and Machel Graham and has not been seen since last Thursday, the Met Police said.

The tot is just seven days old, and staff had noticed symptoms consistent with a serious respiratory condition during a post-natal appointment.
Her parents have been advised to take the child to A&E for an urgent assessment.
Detective Chief Inspector Lucy O’Connor, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of Baby Graham.
“There will be a time and a place to explore their reasons, but right now our priority has to be the safety of this very young baby.
“While we would of course ask the public to keep an eye out for Baby Graham’s parents, we believe it’s likely they are being accommodated by relatives or associates.

“I would urge those people to put the welfare of this tiny baby girl above any other loyalty they may have and get in touch with the police.
“I would also appeal directly to Azara and Machel to do the right thing and to go to the nearest A&E so that Baby Graham can get the care she needs.”
Anyone who sees Baby Graham or knows where she or her parents are should call 999, providing the reference 21MIS011809.
