A MAN (27) has been charged in Northern Ireland in connection to the disappearance of two boys in Belfast on Friday.

Detective Inspector Carol Dane said that the PSNI still need help from the public to find the two boys.

“Both boys were last seen getting into a black coloured Ford car at around 6pm on Friday 14 May in the Limestone Road area of Belfast,” said Dane.
