THE mother of twins from Skegness who were found near Newark last night following a police search has been arrested along with a 62-year-old man from Mansfield.
Lincolnshire Police found Billy Blu and Vixen Rae Francis, both aged 4, just before midnight in a car at Murco petrol station on the A617.
Their mother Tamara Dyson, 37, and another man were found with them and arrested on suspicion of kidnap. They are now being questioned by detectives at Skegness police station.
The twins, who went missing from a social services care centre in Skegness last Thursday, were described as safe and well. They have been returned to the care of Lincolnshire County Council’s social services department.
A police spokeswoman said: “I believe there were observations in the area. Police spotted a car and saw the occupants matched the descriptions and stopped them and put in a challenge.” Social workers were supposed to be monitoring a visit from their grandmother when the twins disappeared.
The children’s father Billy Francis, 31, had pleaded for the public’s help after they went missing last week.
