Have you seen these two teenagers?

Police are appealing for public assistance to help locate the boy and girl who were last seen in Alstonville on Monday.

Reginald Ayling and Laura Stephens, both aged 13, were last seen about 12pm outside a school on Cawley Close, Alstonville.

Officers attached to Richmond Police District were alerted when the children could not be located and an investigation into their whereabouts began.

There are concerns for their welfare due to the age of the teens.

Reginald was last seen wearing a blue hoodie, shorts and carrying a black backpack. He is described as Caucasian appearance, dark brown curly hair, 170cm tall and thin build

Laura was last seen wearing a black hoodie, grey trackpants, boots and carrying a shoulder bag. She is described as Caucasian appearance, light brown hair, 160cm tall and thin build.

Police urge anyone with information on the whereabouts of Reginald and Laura to contact Ballina Police Station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
