Police in the North say they are becoming increasingly concerned about the whereabouts of a family from Longford who have been missing since earlier this week.
John Kelly, Melissa Teague and their six children - who are originally from Longford - had been living in the Ballymartin area of Co Down.
The children are aged from nine months to five years and were last seen with their parents on Wednesday.
The PSNI is appealing to any members of the public with any information about the whereabouts of the family to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Stephen Wright said: "I would also like to hear from anyone who has knowledge of the family’s whereabouts or who may have noticed a family of two adults and six children in the local area or further afield."
