Teens 'just wanted to be with baby': mum

The police said they were speaking to the teenagers and ambulance officers were called to assess the infant as a precaution.

Fifteen-year-old Jenifer Morrison and 14-year-old Jayden Lavender left Nepean Hospital about 12.30am today (Thursday, April 13), taking their three-day-old baby with them.

Police hold concerns for the welfare of all three.

CCTV footage showed the young parents leaving with an unidentified man.

She said Jayden and Jenifer made the decision to smuggle their baby out of hospital after they were told they would not be able to take Aria home with them.

"They don't want to be apart from their baby, they're good parents", she said.

"The doctors still need to see your baby and make sure it's progressing nicely".

He said they were "very young parents" who needed help.
