Missing North Coast teenagers Georgina Hills, Tyson Giles and Alex Cupitt.

Police are appealing for public assistance to help locate three teenagers who may possibly be in the Byron Bay or Lismore areas.

The two boys and a girl, Tyson Giles (13), Alex Cupitt (13) and Georgina Hills (14), are from Alstonville, Lismore and Kyogle respectively.

Georgina was last seen attending school in Lismore on Monday, February 5, and was reported missing to police the following day.

Tyson and Alex were last seen attending school in Lismore on Friday, February 2.

They were reported missing to police last Friday, February 16.

It is now believed the three are travelling together in the Byron Bay or Lismore areas and are refusing to contact family or carers.

Police have concerns for their welfare and would like to speak with the three children to ensure their wellbeing.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts is urged to contact Lismore police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Information can be given in confidence.
