A MOTHER is appealing for help in hunting down her missing toddler.
Nathan Williams, 3, has not been seen for nine days after the boy's father, also called Nathan Williams, allegedly took him from his Isleworth home against mother, Sarah Hendry's wishes.
The 27-year-old father is from Luton, so Bedfordshire Police are concentrating their search efforts in that area.
A police spokeswoman said they are "concerned for the safety" of the youngster who only recently moved to the Isleworth area with his mother and was taken on Tuesday, April 13.
Nathan senior has not been in contact with any members of the family since.
Detective Inspector Martin Peters, who is leading the search for Nathan, said: "Clearly Nathan's mum and family are extremely anxious as they have not seen Nathan for over a week.
"Officers are working around the clock to locate Nathan and his son but we do need the public to help.
"We know that Nathan senior has contacts in Luton, Bedford and Northamptonshire so we would urge anyone who is out and about to keep their eyes open and contact the police immediately if ther see anyone matching their descriptions.
"Bedfordshire Police are therefore concerned and are appealing for Nathan Williams senior or anyone who has seen father or son, or knows of their whereabouts to contact them as a matter of urgency."
Nathan senior is described as a mixed race man, "5'11" tall with a muscular build, cropped black hair and brown eyes. He speaks with a southern accent and usually has stubble on his chin.
Sarah has set up a Facebook group to help find her missing son, in it she writes: "No one has heard from the child or even seen him, please if you know anything let me know privately or let the police know."
Anyone who can help find Nathan and his son should contact Bedfordshire Police, in confidence on 01234 841 212 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
