Pareece Bottomley, 12

Police are urgently trying to trace a brother and sister missing from home in Preston.

There's growing concern for Marcus Bottomley, 13, who was last seen a week ago at an address on Ribbleton Avenue and his sister, Pareece Bottomley, who is 12, who was last seen at around 4.30pm last Friday at the same address.

Marcus Bottomley

Marcus is described as approximately 5ft, of stocky build with short red hair and was last seen wearing a black Nike jumper and black bottoms.

Pareece is described as of slim build with red hair.

They are known to have links to the Blackburn area but may still be in Preston.

We believe Marcus and Pareece could be together and we are becoming increasingly concerned about them. If anyone has seen them or has any information about their whereabouts I would urge them to get in touch with us.

– Inspector Zegham Awan, Preston Police
