Police are renewing their appeal for information to locate two teenage boys who went missing following a police pursuit at Airds earlier in the week.
About 11:40am, Monday, October 13, two 14-year-old boys travelling in a black BMW were allegedly involved in a police pursuit that started in Bradbury, and ended in a reserve off Banooke Way, Airds.
The boys were last seen running into bushland east of the Airds area and a large scale search involving local police, the Dog Unit and Polair was conducted.
About 8:50pm one of the boys made contact with his mother via mobile phone informing her they were lost.
Police completed a triangulation of his mobile phone which narrowed the search area down to an area near Keith Longhurst Reserve off Georges River Gorge at Kentlyn.
Further searches were conduct over the next two days (Tuesday and Wednesday, October 14-15) involving police, the State Emergency Service, Rural Fire Service, Volunteer Rescue Association and NSW Ambulance Service.
Despite the searches, police have been unable to locate the boys, and are renewing their appeal for information about their whereabouts.
Robert Whitfield, aged 14, is described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Island appearance, 150cm tall with a thin build, short brown shaved hair and brown eyes.
His friend Deng Lual, also aged 14, is described as being of African appearance with a dark complexion, 155 – 160cm tall with a thin build, short dark hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about their welfare or whereabouts is urged to contact police via Triple Zero (000) immediately.
