"I feel very sad and shocked because my kids are missing," Ion Sava, 33, told the Birmingham Mail.
"They have never done this before. They only ever go to the shops with their parents.
"They walked out the door and that was the last time I saw them. I've tried calling their friends' parents - but nothing."
Mr Sava's wife was said to be too distressed to speak.
