Three Missing brothers spotted leaving Newcastle Central Station

Northumbria Police are continuing to locate three missing brothers from Sunderland.

The brothers Remus aged 15, Janko aged 12, and David 10, left their foster home in The Oakes in Sunderland at 5.20pm on Monday, August 11 to go on a bike ride.

Their foster parents expected them to return at 8pm, they did not return home and their foster parents went out the look for the missing brothers aswell as alerting the police.

Initial enquiries have uncovered CCTV footage which shows the boys riding through Mowbray Park they did not stop at the park and cycled to nearby Park Lane Metro Station without their bikes and helmets.


The boys then purchased tickets to Newcastle Central Railway Station, they arrive at the Newcastle Central at 6.04pm heading towards the main doors and walking in the direction of the centre for life.

Police have no idea where the boys went from their.

Superintendent Alan Veitch of Sunderland Area Command said: “We are increasingly concerned for the boys welfare and we are appealing for anyone who may have seen the youngsters travel on the Metro from Sunderland Park Lane arriving at Newcastle Central Station at 6.04pm last night.

“We urgently need to hear from anyone who saw the boys after that. We don’t know if they travelled onward by rail, or if they came into Newcastle, or used another form of transport to go elsewhere.

“We are carrying out a number of enquiries to locate these young people. So far we believe they may have been travelling to the railway station for a purpose to meet with a friend or family member.

“We would ask if anyone knows the boy’s whereabouts we would ask them to contact police straightaway. We need to know where the boys are and that they are safe.

“Officers are also making enquiries with family members in Blyth and South Shields and also with other forces elsewhere including the Birmingham area.”

Police have yet to recover the boy’s three bicycles and cycling helmets. Officers are carrying out a search for these items and would also appeal for anyone who may have seen the boys leave these bikes and helmets somewhere before they got on the metro in Sunderland, or who knows where these items are now to contact police.
