The CCTV footage was captured this morning around 9am, police have confirmed.
Officers are fearful for the family’s safety and have appealed for the mother to make contact and seek medical assistance.
It is believed that Ms Marten had ‘very recently given birth and neither her or the baby have been assessed by medical professionals’.
Essex police said they ‘urgently want to find’ the family and are doing ‘all we can to help.’
Ms Marten, Mr Gordon and the baby have been missing since their vehicle broke down near junction four of the M61, near Bolton, on Thursday night.
Officers said after their car broke down, the couple walked towards Anchor Lane bridge which links the Highfield and Little Hutlon areas Bolton.
Mr Gordon was previously described as wearing dark clothing while Ms Marten, who has a southern accent, was wearing a burgundy coat. The baby was swaddled.
GMP’s head of public protection, Chief Superintendent Michaela Kerr, said today that the ‘concern is make sure the Constance, Mark and baby are safe and well.’

‘As a mum, I would like to make a direct appeal to Constance,’ Ms Kerr stated.
‘Constance, I know this is an exceptionally hard time for you and you are likely feeling scared, but I promise that our number one priority is the same as yours – to keep your beautiful newborn safe.
‘As you know, it’s really important that both you and your baby are assessed by medical professionals as soon as possible, so please make contact with emergency services or make your way to your nearest hospital, wherever that may be.
‘I would also like to appeal to members of the public, not just in Bolton but across Greater Manchester and beyond.
‘If you have any information about this family’s whereabouts, please do nothing more than contact emergency services.
‘GMP can be contacted via live chat on our website or 999. Even the most minor detail might help us keep this mum and baby safe.’
Police appealed for anyone with information to contact GMP on 999 quoting 2657 05/01/23 or via gmp.police.uk.
