Emergency services were called to two incidents today involving a missing child on Formby beach

On one of the busiest days of the year at National Trust Formby, a parents worst nightmare when a three-year-old boy went missing among crowds of thousands of beach-goers.

Merseyside Police received a call at 4.08pm to reports of a missing three year-old boy on Formby beach at National Trust on Victoria Road.

Police attended the scene with a heavy response including Police horses, Police vans and Police cars. Merseyside Fire and Rescue also attended the scene to help find the missing boy.

To the huge relief of everyone, the 3-year-old was found safe and well at 4:42pm.

A second incident occurred whilst the teams were still in attendance when officers were informed that a 7-year-old boy had also gone missing.

Teams continued to search and the Police helicopter also attended. Merseyside Fire Search and Rescue team were called to attend and as the rescue wagon made its way down Woodlands Road with blues and twos, the call came through that the second boy had also been found safe and well at 5:28pm.

A happy ending all round. Well done to all emergency services involved with acting so quickly.
