Teenage couple flees hospital with their newborn baby girl

Jayden Lavender, 14, and Jenifer Morrison, 15, have been found "safe and well" after disappearing from a Sydney hospital with their newborn baby, sparking a mass search and pleas from authorities for them to come forward.

Fifteen-year-old mum Jenifer Morrison and her boyfriend Jayden Lavender, 14, left Nepean Hospital with baby Aria without being formally discharged about 12.30am on Thursday.

Very little was known about the identity of the adult with them, he said.

"Tell us where they are so we can help them", he said.

Jenifer fought back tears as she spoke and said she felt "broken" after being separated from Aria.

Ms Lavender said her son had "been there the whole way through the pregnancy".

Jayden's mother Tracy Lavender has been keeping a bedside vigil over the infant in Nepean Hospital.

"While she's in hospital, I'm going to be there by her side", Ms Lavender said.

Jayden and Jenifer are missing with their newborn baby.

The trio were found at Willmot, in Sydney's west, on Thursday afternoon after Jayden bought camping equipment and returned to the area where he grew up.

The teens were interviewed by police on Thursday evening while baby Aria was assessed back in hospital as the matter is being dealt with by the department of Family and Community Services.

Police have said no one committed an offence so no charges would be laid over the incident.

They left the hospital together on foot, and were believed to be in the company of an unknown man.

She said her son had hoped to raise their kid while attending St Agnes Catholic High School at Rooty Hill.

'But he had to do what was right for his baby and his girlfriend'.

He proposed to her weeks later and they began planning a wedding - with the blessing of Ms Lavender.

"Jenny is a good mum", Ms Lavender said.

Armed with a few items of clothing for their three-day-old daughter, Aria, and a sum of $80 the young parents made their way to Mount Druitt before purchasing a tent, sleeping bag and camping supplies from Kmart.
