David, 10, is 4 feet 8” tall, shaggy dark brown hair and chubby build. Wearing shorts and a green sleeveless t-shirt and a grey hooded jacket.

Superintendent Alan Veitch, of Sunderland Area Command, said: “I would again appeal for anyone who thinks they may seen the three brothers to contact police straight away.

“As time goes on we are increasingly concerned for the welfare of the boys and we need assistance from the public to help us find them safe and well.

“If Remus, Janko or David see this appeal I would say to them, you are not in any trouble we just want to know you are safe and well. Let us know where you are so we can come and find you.

“This is a fast moving enquiry and we are liaising with forces around the country.”
