Missing boy has 'never disappeared overnight'

The playground is very close to his home address. He plays out but has never gone missing before overnight - but has gone missing previously.

When we've spoken to people nearby they didn't know his name but when we showed a photo they knew who he was as a local boy.

Last night, a lot of searching went on with the helicopter and street searches. But we're now retracing our steps and carrying out new searches.
