A mother reunited with her toddler son three days after he and his father disappeared from their home in East Sussex has said she is overjoyed.
Emma Bonner and Finley were reunited after three days
A police patrol came across Barry Lovell, 31, and 14-month-old Finley in his car at a car park in Ashdown Forest, Crowborough, on Thursday.
"I am so happy to find my baby and my partner alive and that they are well," said Emma Bonner, 23.
She and Mr Lovell's parents had made emotional appeals for his return.
She said Finley was particularly excited to see his brother Thomas, five, again.
"They are both my world - without them life is just not worth living."
Mr Lovell had left the family home in the Hampden Park area of Eastbourne after a row with his fiancee about money.
Police located his silver Vauxhall Vectra in a remote car park in the forest at about 2300 GMT.
Ms Bonner said she wanted to thank the media and the public for their help in locating father and son.
Mr Lovell was arrested on suspicion of child neglect and released on bail until 2 February.
