Helen's Family: "Despite this victory for justice there can be no celebration"
Luton: Mum Goes On The Run With Child
A Luton mum has gone on the run with her 4 year-old son after defying a court ruling to take him back to Lanzerote.
The High Court ordered Marie Roche, 33, to return her son Dylan to the Canaries by Tuesday August 7 under The Hague Abduction Convention.
But Marie, who had fled the island to escape what she says was an abusive relationship with his Irish father, has refused to go back.
Police arrived at her parents' home in Nursery Parade, Luton to take Dylan away, but the mother and child have disappeared. Her son was born in Lanzerote, but has a British passport.
Yesterday her father John said: "I don't know where she is. But she has been in contact with me and her mother and I know they are ok. I don't know what she is doing for money. What we have here is a mother is being punished for trying to protect her son."
John added: "I am writing a letter to David Cameron. Marie will come back if the Home Office are happy to sit down sensibly, consider all of the evidence and look at this case again."
