Our inquiries to trace Mikaeel have been ongoing for over 12 hours now and so far, we have still to receive that vital piece of information that will lead to his discovery.

I would like to thank the local community for their continued support and assistance during the search, and I also wish to thank those who have already called our dedicated number with information.

All information received is being quickly progressed by our officers and I’d like to urge anyone who thinks they may know where Mikaeel is be to get in touch if they haven’t done so already.”
