I saw my sons on June 11th 2015. It was the day I moved into my flat.that evening my wife called to ask me to go and settle my 1 yr old as he was very upset. I put him to bed and made arrangements to look after them on the 12th, as I had agreed to mind them 5 days a week so she could work. When I arrived, the house was empty and she tested me to say she had left Newcastle and I would hear from her solicitor.I when yo the police who said they couldn't do anything as she had text saying they were safe. My greatest concern is for my 4yr old because he is autistic and was settled at a special school. My wife finds it difficult to manage the children and gets very depressed.
I've checked social media and friends but have found no information.She has given up her business, house mobility car and my sons place in the special school.
When I first reported it, the police said that as she had texted me that they were settled and happy they could not do anything unless I thought she would take them out of the county. The children do not have passports. I am worried that her father is putting pressure on her. Apparently he wants to leave his second wife in Egypt. He studied for his PHD in Glasgow and has friend there. He is not a UK citizen. He may think if he says she needs his help he could extend his visa. Do you think I should have grounds to ask the police to run the check? Do I have the right to know where my children are and that they are safe?
Sorry about the delay I've been having difficulty accessing WiFi. Lucy texted me on 20th July saying they were safe and not to hassle her and that I would hear from her solicitor. I left it for a couple of weeks then asked if she would text me photos of the boys.She respond with "good try"saying I just want to trace her. I accept that the marriage is over, but I am very concerned about the children, particularly as she finds it difficult to cope with my autistic son. I had to give up my contract and now only have a zero hr.contact she has also needed help from the mental health team and a psychologist.
Lucinda suffered from depression, the local mental health team worked with her and a psychologist recently.
Thank you that is most helpful
