Police on Merseyside have said a missing four-year-old boy, believed to be with his parents, has links to Northamptonshire.
Suren Stepans, from the Southport area, was last seen on Merseyside with his parents at his home on Sunday, June 29, and has subsequently been reported as missing to police.
Officers say he may have links to the county and have urged anyone with potential information to get in touch.
Police understand Suren was seen at an address in Blackburn, Lancashire, on Friday, July 18, but has not been seen since.
Suren is still believed to be with his father and mother, Arturs Brezovskis and Maruta Stepans, pictured above.
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.
Suren is believed to have family in the Blackburn area of Lancashire and his family are also believed to have links to Northamptonshire and Lincoln.
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 or the Missing People charity on 116 000.
