The search for missing four-year-old Suren Stepans, who was last seen at his home in Merseyside on June 29, has been extended to Lincoln, as his family are believed to have ties in the city.
Merseyside Police believe he is with his parents, Arturs Brezovskis and Maruta Stephans.
He has family in the Blackburn area of Lancashire. Suren’s family also have ties in Lincoln and Northamptonshire.
Suren was with his parents at their home on Bridge Street in Blackburn before he was reported as missing.
Officers have received reports of a sighting at an address in Blackburn, Lancashire on Friday, July 18.
No other sighting have been reported since.
Officers and social services are becoming increasingly concerned for Suren’s welfare and are urging people with information about his whereabouts, or those of his parents, to get in touch.
Suren is described as white, about 3ft 6in tall, of a slight build and with an olive complexion. He has short dark brown straight hair and brown eyes.
Suren does not speak English but does speak a limited amount of Latvian.
Anyone who thinks they have seen Suren, or his parents, or has any information about their whereabouts, is urged to call Merseyside Police via the 101 number (when calling from Lincolnshire, stay on the line and ask for Merseyside Police when prompted), or the Missing People charity on 116 000.
