Yesterday (Friday, July 16), police issued a public appeal to help find the boy, who was reported missing with three other children on Wednesday (July 14).

All four had last been seen in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, and police said they were growing concerned for the Morecambe boy's welfare.

But the child has now been located and offiers say he is "safe and well".
