Fears for boy, 11, missing in freezing conditions


Live

Fears are held for an 11-year-old boy missing in Sydney’s north-west after temperatures plummeted to four degrees overnight.

Christopher Wilson got off a school bus on Annangrove Road, Annangrove, about 3pm on Wednesday to go home but failed to arrive, NSW Police said.

He was wearing his school uniform – a blue T-shirt with maroon and white trim, grey shorts, and red and black shoes.

He was spotted walking along Annangrove Road towards Rouse Hill about 4.45pm, wearing a black and white jacket and carrying a black backpack.

A search of the area overnight by local police, PolAir, Police Rescue and 15 members of the SES was unsuccessful and will resume on Thursday morning.

Police are concerned for Christopher’s welfare due to his age and because temperatures dropped to just four degrees overnight.

He is described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander appearance, about 120 centimetres tall, of slim build, with short brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
