A brother and sister who went missing from their foster homes could be in Barnet.

Olivia and Alfie Cromwell had been living in the borough before being placed in foster homes on May 22.

Olivia, 14, had been in Clacton-on-Sea on May 23 and Alfie was placed in Ipswich on May 22.

Both went missing a short time after arriving at their new addresses and it is thought that they may be together and may return to the Barnet area.

Olivia is white, 5ft 2 ins tall, slim and with shoulder length light fair/highlighted hair. Alfie is white, 5ft tall, with short, fair hair.

Anyone who may have seen either child is asked to call police on 101 and ask for Barnet Missing Person Unit.
