He had not been seen since 8pm last night after visiting a playground in Stamford Close in Tottenham.

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.
