Missing Children

Five children were on Sunday reported missing to Conisbrough police.

Two boys, Keith Wordsworth (6) 58 Daylands Avenue and Brian Day (6), 64 Daylands Avenue, have not been seen since 3:30 PM and three sisters named Theobald, Ruth (8), Joan (7) and Gladys (5) of Halifax Avenue Conanby were reported missing from 5 PM.

The girls were eventually found by neighbours wandering on Conisbrough crags and later the boys also turned up, having been playing in the Pastures fields.
