Head teacher’s appeal plea as two-week hunt for missing Cambridgeshire mum continues

A HEAD TEACHER is appealing for the public to help trace a missing Cambridgeshire mum who hasn’t been seen for more than two weeks.

Fulbridge School head Iain Erskine made the plea because Vitalija Baliutaviciene’s 10-year-old son is a pupil at the school in Keeton Road, New England, Peterborough.

The 29-year-old has not been seen since leaving her home in the city’s Burmer Road at 5.10am on Friday August 12.

Mr Erskine said: “Vitalija’s son joined us for the last few weeks of the summer term. He’s a nice boy and was settling in well.

“While I have not spoken to him since his mother went missing, I’m sure he must be very worried about her.

“He is a young boy, in a foreign country with most of his relatives hundreds of miles away.

“He must be feeling very lonely and missing his mum terribly. If you know where Vitalija is, please tell the police so he can be reunited with her.”
