Police are becoming increasingly concerned about the welfare of two children from north Belfast and are appealing to the public for help in locating them.
Five-year-old Patrick Hovarth and his older brother, Fabricio who is eight years old, were last seen in Belfast on Friday evening, 14 May.
Inspector Phil McCullagh said: “We are keen to know that both boys are safe and well. We believe they may be in the company of a relative in Northern Ireland or possibly in Ireland – and so I would appeal to that person to get in touch with police as soon as possible on 101, quoting the reference number 2275 of 14/5/21.
“Both boys are dark-haired and were seen getting into a black Ford car around 6pm on Friday 14 May in the Limestone road area of Belfast. At that time, the younger brother, Patrick, was wearing light-coloured bottoms and top with black shoes. Fabricio was wearing grey bottoms and a purple and green top.
“If any members of the public have any information about the boys or have seen them since Friday evening, I would urge them to contact police immediately.”
