Three siblings have gone missing from their home in Hastings.

Ben and James Reade, who are 15 and 14, left their home address in North Lane, Guestling near Hastings during the evening on Thursday (July 10).

At around 8.30am on Friday (July 11) Jemima, 16, was being taken to school by her foster mum, when they see her two brothers in a field near Butcher's Lane. Jemima gets out the car but doesn't return.

Sergeant Simon Barden said: "These three teenagers have now been missing since Thursday night and Friday morning and we are becoming increasingly worried about their welfare. They were last seen together at about 4pm in the Priory Meadow Shopping Centre on Friday.

"Ben is described as around 6', slim with short brown hair and was last seen wearing a quilted black jacket, dark jeans and bright green adidas trainers. James is described as also about 6', slim with short brown hair. He was wearing black and dark grey patterned fleece, jeans or jogging bottoms and grey trainers. Jemima is described as 5' 7" with shoulder length light brown hair. She was wearing a dark blue hooded top with white and orange writing on the front, jeans and blue plimsolls.

"They have also been seen in Rye, Winchelsea and Hasting and we think they are still in the area. We are appealing to anyone who might have seen them or know where they, to please get in touch. Ben, James and Jemima, if you see this appeal, please get in touch and let us know you're ok. You can call on 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting 1547 of 11/7."
