DIVERS, dog handlers, helicopters, coastguards and 60 uniformed police today continued their search for a seven-year-old boy.

Fears were growing for Daniel Entwistle after his bicycle was found abandoned on a riverside quay close to his home in Copperfield Avenue, Great Yarmouth.

Daniel vanished at 5pm on Saturday, and yesterday his distraught mother Paula, 31, made an emotional appeal.

With Daniel's father, David, 41, she said: "If anybody knows or has seen anything, anything, suspicious or untoward could they please just ring the police. Daniel if you are watching please come home, you are not in trouble, please come home."

Detective superintendent Julian Gregory said: "I am sure we can all imagine the trauma the parents are going through and we want the public to help us."
