Police in Northern Ireland appeal for information about missing Belfast boys

POLICE IN Northern Ireland are “increasingly concerned” for the welfare of two young children from Belfast.

Fabricio Hovarth, 8, and his brother Patrick, 5, were last seen in the city on Friday evening.

They were seen getting into the back of a black Ford car at around 6pm on Friday May 14 , in the Limestone Road area of Belfast.

It is thought that the boys may be with a relative in either Northern Ireland or even potentially over in Dublin.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland are appealing to the public to help them track down the missing brothers.

Inspector Phil McCullagh is eager to make contact with whoever is with the boys or may have seen them in order to ascertain that they are safe and well.

"We believe they may be in the company of a relative in Northern Ireland or possibly in Ireland and so I would appeal to that person to get in touch with police as soon as possible on 101, quoting the reference number 2275 of 14/5/21," he said.

The boys are described as both having dark hair at the time of their last sighting.

Patrick was last seen wearing light-coloured bottoms and top with black shoes, while Fabricio had on grey bottoms and a purple and green top.

"If any members of the public have any information about the boys or have seen them since Friday evening, I would urge them to contact police immediately," Inspector McCullagh said.

Anyone calling from the Republic, via a roaming network on from outside the Uk should contact the PSNI on 0044 2890 650222.
