Dad Mark Gordon who vanished 11 days ago with partner Constance Marten and newborn baby is convicted sex offender | The Sun

A MAN who vanished along with a mum and newborn baby is a registered sex offender who spent 20 years in jail, police say.

Mark Gordon disappeared with partner Constance Marten and the baby on January 5 when their car broke down in Bolton.


Police are desperately hunting the couple and say neither Constance or the baby have had medical attention.

They confirmed today Gordon is a sex offender who served 20 years in US jail for rape and battery.

He was convicted for attacking a woman in Florida when he was just 14.

It comes after it emerged Constance is the granddaughter of Mary Anna Marten – whose godmother was the late Queen Mother.

Her family used to own the Crichel Estate near Wimborne in Dorset.

Constance's dad, Napier Marten, who was a page to Queen Elizabeth, gave up the £115million family fortune.

Her and Gordon were on the M61 motorway on January 5 when their car broke down and caught fire.

The couple then walked to Anchor Lane Bridge, where they got a taxi to Liverpool before getting another to Harwich, Essex.

They were spotted around Colchester on January 6 and 7, where they took another cab to East Ham station in East London.

Police believe the couple know how to evade the authorities as they are always covering their faces on CCTV.

Constance and Gordon have no luggage with them after most of their belongings were destroyed in the car fire.

The couple are using cash to pay for taxis and places to stay and have a substantial amount that will allow them to live off-grid.

They are understood to have lived an isolated life since meeting in 2016 with Constance cutting off ties with family and friends.

The couple have also been renting AirBnBs for brief periods across the country since September.

As a result, police say Constance and Gordon could be anywhere in the UK and are appealing to the public to come forward "as a matter of urgency".

Detective Superintendent Lewis Basford, who is leading the investigation, said: “It has now almost been two weeks since Mark and Constance’s car broke down on the M61 near Bolton and they have been on the move all that time with a newborn baby.

“As far as we are aware, neither Constance nor the baby have received medical attention since it was born. Our priority is to ensure the baby, and indeed both Constance and Mark, are safe and well.
