The mother of a man who, along with his wife and newborn baby, had not been seen for two weeks made an urgent appeal for help just minutes before her family members were reportedly found interstate.
Coree Stewart, 26, his 28-year-old partner Patricia Taylor and their 16-week-old baby Isaac were last seen at their home in Balcatta when the alarm was raised by family members on Monday evening.
The couple’s car remained at their address, and a note saying the family was going to Adelaide to try to find “peace” and “home” was found by relatives.
“It’s very concerning,” Mr Stewart’s mother, Michelle Smith, said. “It’s really unusual behaviour.”
Speaking to Nine News Perth’s Jerrie Demasi, Ms Smith said the young family had been overwhelmed in recent weeks with the birth of their son, and the couple were “very scared with the pandemic”.
