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
