Danish police looking for missing woman and her one-year-old son

Mother and child have not been seen since May 27

Mid and West Jutland police are asking for help in locating 33-year-old Christina Hougaard and her one-year-old son, Elias Emmanuel Hougaard. The mother and child have not been seen since May 27.

Ex-husband also missing
Relatives have not had contact with Hougaard since May 26. She was last seen at an ATM in Aulum near Holstebro.  Hougaard’s car has also disappeared. It is a black Toyota Aygo with registration number BB 20727.

Police are also looking for the woman’s ex-husband, Adam Hougaard, who has also been missing since the end of May.

Police suspect that the woman and her child may have gone abroad, perhaps to Africa, where the ex-husband had previously lived. The couple are now wanted internationally.
