A father has described his sadness and shock after his two children went missing in Birmingham.
Police have launched a search for Saina Sava,11, and her brother Adi, 3, who have not been seen since leaving their family home in Wright Road, Washwood Heath at around 11.30am this morning.
"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.
