Search for missing four-year-old Belgian boy continues
Four days after the disappearance of little Younes in the Comines region, there is still no news of the boy’s whereabouts.
After recieving several calls from witnesses, police on both sides of the French-Belgian border are following up the reports.
Sébastien Dauchy, chief of police in Comines-Warneton, said: “Through Child Focus, and at the police station, we have been receiving calls and mails. We don’t reject any of them out of hand, we check every one.”
He went on to say that “no helicopters, no divers are yet being used, only tracker dogs on the ground.”
Interpol has also launched an alert to all 188 of its member countries to help find the child.
“In the case of missing people, it’s vital that the alert is raised quickly and all the necessary information is disseminated, both nationally and internationally,” said a press statement for the organisation based in Lyon.
Younes is 1,10 metres tall, has brown eyes and brown frizzy hair. He was barefoot and very lightly dressed when he left the family home on Sunday night/Monday morning, following a violent argument between his parents,.
