Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a nine-year-old boy who went missing from a playground in Tottenham last night.

Daequan George was last seen at a playground in Stamford Close at about 8pm.

Officers are carrying out searches in the area and are appealing for members of the public to keep an eye out.

He was last seen wearing yellow or rust-coloured jeans, a black zip-up hooded top with leather patches, a purple and yellow hat and black Nike trainers which have a green 'Nike tick' on the tongue.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
