Hunt for missing young brother and sister

POLICE are appealing for information about a missing toddler brother and sister who were last seen with their father a week ago.

One-year-old Mohammad Al-Ali and his two-year-old sister Zaneb were last seen leaving their grandfather's Craigieburn home about 4.50pm on January 9.

They were with their father, who is 170cm tall, with brown eyes, a thin build and short brown hair.

He had a beard and a moustache at the time.

Victoria Police media adviser Scout Rigoni said the children's family and police were concerned due to their age and the length of time they have been missing.

"An image of the children's father has been released in the hope that someone may recognise him and be able to provide information on the family's whereabouts," she said.

Police urged anyone with information to call the Craigieburn Police Station on 5732 0888.

It comes after police appealed for information about three other missing teens.

Twelve-year-old Jamie Clavant was last spotted in Yarra St, Warrandyte about 9.30pm on Monday.

He is 158cm tall with sandy blond hair and a thin build, and was wearing a grey and blue striped shorts, a grey singlet and a grey baseball cap.

He was travelling on a silver scooter.
