Ever since their car was found wrecked and burning on M61 near Bolton on January 5th, Constance Marten, Mark Gordon, and their child have been the subject of a police search. The couple and their newborn managed to escape from the car and are suspected to have fled on foot, their current whereabouts unknown. According to some reports, they might be in Holland.

Missing: Daughter of Queen Elizabeth II's page

Napier Marten, Queen Elizabeth II's former page, is the father of the 35-year-old missing person, Constance Marten. Her grandmother Mary Anna Marten was a good friend of Princess Margaret, who was the sister of Queen Elizabeth II, and Mary was Queen Mother Elizabeth's goddaughter. Thus, the family's ties with the British monarchy span many years. The young aristocrat routinely featured on British magazine covers, with her known fondly as the "it girl".

After finishing her journalism degree at the University of Leeds, Constance pursued acting. Her peers from university described her as exceptionally talented with a bright future. However, in 2016, she decided to quit, a decision possibly influenced by Mark Gordon. Since then, she lost contact with her family. Despite the estrangement, she has a multimillion-dollar trust fund and assets at her disposal.

Newborn baby also missing

Due to rent arrears and property damages, Constance Marten and Mark Gordon have been serially evicted from various apartments. Described by neighbours as secretive, the couple seldom interacted with others. The exact birth date of their child is unknown but is believed to be not more than a month old, and the child has not undergone a medical examination post birth. Therefore, doubts linger about the child's well-being.

Pictures from Constance's social media accounts from two years ago reveal another son, her older child.
