"Det Ch Insp Ian Hunter said he did not believe there was any risk to the community."

It's not too difficult to read between the lines here.

The mother has vanished, they think she has left the UK........



Bicester death: Mother of girl, 2, sought by police



The mother of a two-year-old girl whose body was found in a house in Oxfordshire is believed to have left the UK, police have said.

Officers went to the property in Herald Way, Bicester, shortly after 10:00 BST after receiving a report concerning fear for a child's welfare.

The girl was pronounced dead at the scene.

Det Ch Insp Ian Hunter said she is thought to have been in the care of her mother, who police are trying to trace.

The Thames Valley Police detective said: "At this time she is thought to have left the United Kingdom.

"We need to speak to the mother to establish the circumstances prior to the discovery of the child's body."

Neighbours told the BBC "a mother and child" lived at the house in Glory Farm.

A post-mortem examination was due to be carried out later. Formal identification is yet to take place.

Mother suspect in girl's murder probe - full story

Detectives are treating the death of a 20-month-old girl in Oxfordshire as murder and named her mother as a suspect.

Angela Whitworth, 40, is believed to have fled to Kenya the evening before the body of Sarah Dahane was discovered by police in Bicester on May 16.

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Hunter, of Thames Valley Police, said: "We are investigating this incident as murder.

"However, I am keeping an open mind as at this time I cannot exclude an accident or natural causes contributing to Sarah's death.

"Sarah Dahane was a healthy, thriving and well-nourished child who was found dead with no obvious signs of trauma.

"This is a detailed and thorough investigation to establish the death and identify the exact circumstances into how and why Sarah died.

"There were ongoing legal proceedings regarding custody of Sarah between her mother and father.

"Angela Whitworth is 40 years old. She is a suspect but at this stage is believed to be in Kenya."

Mr Hunter continued: "Until we are in a position to establish the cause of death we are of course keeping an open mind into what happened and we are working with law enforcement agencies, including the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Interpol, and the Crown Prosecution Service to further the investigation.

"Police responded to a call from Sarah's father, Nabil Dahane, expecting contact as Sarah had not been presented at an agreed meeting point on Thursday morning."

The body of the baby was discovered by police at a property in Herald Way, Glory Farm, Bicester, having forced entry.

Mr Hunter said that the post-mortem examination was inconclusive with no visible signs of injury and further tests were being carried out.

Police said Ms Whitworth left the UK having boarded a plane at Heathrow Airport, heading to Kenya where her mother lives.

Discussions between Thames Valley Police and the Crown Prosecution Service's extradition unit are ongoing.

Mr Hunter said: "Anyone with information about Angela Whitworth is urged to come forward and speak to us."

The detective said that police had records in 2011 and 2012 of three phone calls being received from either Mr Dahane or Ms Whitworth reporting arguments between them. But none of the calls were received in the last year, he confirmed.

It is understood Ms Whitworth and Mr Dahane had split during the pregnancy and that proceedings over the custody of Sarah were ongoing with a court hearing scheduled for next month.
