Nottinghamshire Police are searching for a missing family with links to Halifax.The young boy has a serious heart condition requiring hospital treatment, but he and his family have not been seen since last year.

Police are attempting to locate Eustace Okere and Clara Anyanwu, and their three children, Nelson, aged six, Krystal, aged four, and Jason, aged one.

Krystal, 4 and Nelson, 6

Concerns were raised after the couple failed to attend a hospital appointment for Nelson in September 2013.Further enquiries reveal that while Mr Okere had picked up Nelson’s medication in August, the family had not been seen at their home in Bestwood Park, Nottinghamshire since May.

Everything pointed to them having left the country, but officers say they can't rule out that the family are still in the UK and are appealing for anyone who has information to contact them.
