POLICE are appealing to trace a missing schoolboy from Wirral who may be with his mum.

Andrei Stoian, eight, was due to take a flight with his mum Georgeta in May from Liverpool John Lennon Airport but they did not board the plane.

The pair live in Harrowby Road, Higher Tranmere but police now believe they may be in Dublin.

Andrei is slim, with olive skin and has medium length black hair with a straight fringe.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Merseyside Police via social media @MerPolCC, call 101 or Missing People on 116 000.
