BREAKING NEWS: Missing Daralston siblings Sophie & Jack Fletcher found safe & well. More to follow.
Police have been carrying out extensive enquiries to find the missing siblings. Officers say the search has been complicated with the closure of their school. It's thought the youngsters may try to travel by train to a previous holiday destination in Borth in Wales.
Police say they need help from the public to find them. Anyone with any information should contact police on 101.

The children have not been missing before and although they have packed clothes and taken money we are very concerned about them, particularly in this cold weather. It is believed they have left on their own accord.
We are continuing to carry out a number of enquiries to try and locate Sophie and Jack and are being supported by a significant number of force resources.
We are now appealing to the public to help us with this search - if you have seen either of the children today or have any information about where they may be, please contact us immediately.
