Missing children 'unlikely' to know way around area

Two children who have been missing in Birmingham since this morning are unlikely to know their way around the area, police say.

Superintendent Alison Telford, who is coordinating the search, said officers were becoming "increasingly worried" about Saina Sava, 11, and her three-year-old brother Adi.

It’s been a number of hours now since Saina and Adi went missing and we’re becoming increasingly worried about them.

As they’ve only been in the city for a short time they’re unlikely to know their way around the area, although we have had numerous sightings of them in the locality throughout the afternoon on Alum Rock Road and Bordesley Green East.

It’s about to get dark and we need to ensure these children are found and reunited with their family as soon as possible, so I would urge people in this area of Birmingham to please check your gardens and sheds and have a look out of the window.

– Superintendent Alison Telford
