Police have issued a photograph of a mother-of-four who is accused of killing her own children in a brutal motorway crash and is believed to have gone on the run. 

Mary McCann, 35, of Derby, failed to appear before Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday to answer two charges of causing death by dangerous driving.

She is set to stand trial over the deaths of her son Smaller, 10, and daughter Lilly, 4, after slamming her white Vauxhall Astra into a Scania HGV while driving on the M1 near J14 and J15 on Monday, August 9. 

The lorry driver was unhurt, but the motorway was closed for 12 hours.

On Saturday, Thames Valley Police appealed for the public's help amid a hunt for the mother-of-four after prosecutors admitted that they 'don't know where she is'.

The force issued a picture of Ms McCann, who speaks with an Irish accent, and said it is possible that she may have altered her appearance.

Ms McCann is white, approximately 5ft 1ins tall, of medium build, with brown hair and blue eyes. 

She is known to have links to Derby, Huntingdon, Luton, the Notholt and Uxbridge areas of London and also the Republic of Ireland.

Sergeant Dominic Mahon, of the Thanes Valley Police's Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit said: 'We are appealing for the public's help in locating Mary McCann after she failed to appear at court in connection with a fatal road traffic collision in Milton Keynes.

'We believe that it may be possible for McCann to try to alter her appearance.

'If anyone believes they recognise McCann, or has any information as to her whereabouts, then please get in touch with Thames Valley Police.

'We do not believe that she poses a danger to the wider public, however if you see her please call Thames Valley Police on 101, and quote reference number 43210356500.

'Alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers for 100% anonymity by calling 0800 555 111 or via their website.' 

Prosecutors yesterday admitted they 'do not know where she is', with Ms McCann failing to contact her solicitors after the funeral of her two children she is accused of killing last week.
