THE dad of an aristocrat who’s missing with her newborn baby and rapist partner has urged police to investigate the church where he says she was brainwashed.
Constance Marten and former prisoner Mark Gordon have been missing since early January and her dad Napier Marten is now calling for cops to look into links with the Nigerian church.

Constance is believed to have become estranged from her wealth aristocratic family and is believed to have access to her trust fund.
Her father was speaking to The Independent, which reported his daughter previously spent time at the Synagogue, Church of All Nations in Lagos and under the rule of TB Joshua, who he called a “phoney prophet”.
Mr Marten said he had “long-held suspicion…since she returned from Lagos” that her time there has been behind her disappearance.

It’s alleged Constance was forced to eat Joshua’s leftovers and isolated socially for not being “focused enough” him.
She reportedly spoke about experiencing paranormal activity which became “quite scary” and was left “confused and traumatised” by her time with the church.
“Constance’s time there at the hands of the so-called Rev TB Joshua was bizarre and damaging in the extreme,” said Mr Marten.
“I am appalled that she should have been there for five, maybe six months when there were opportunities for her to have escaped.

“The stories of the abuse meted out by Joshua are shocking and heart-rending.
“I sincerely hope the police can now investigate potential links between any institution involved in making Constance and others suffer at the hands of the phoney prophet in his Lagos Synagogue.
“These experiences appear to have been a trigger in so much of what has happened to harm Constance in recent years, setting up a pattern of behaviour exposing her to easy manipulation.”

Cops are offering a £10,000 reward in the search for Constance.
The pair were last seen with their baby, in Newhaven, East Sussex on January 9, police added.
The family have been missing since their car broke down and burst into flames on the M61 on January 5.
Shortly before going missing, Constance, 35, gave birth to Gordon’s child “with no medical attention”.
They are believed to have been sleeping rough after being spotted buying camping equipment from an East London Argos on January 7.
The same day, they were seen on grainy CCTV dumping the baby’s pram in the port town at 11.46pm.
Constance has reportedly led an isolated life since moving in with Gordon in 2016.
The 48-year-old is a convicted sex offender who served 20 years in a US prison for rape and battery.
He was convicted for attacking a woman in Florida when he was just 14.
