An Ananda Alert has been activated for two children who went missing on the weekend.

The police are asking anyone who know the whereabouts of 14-year-old Tahise Cole of Phase I, Seaview Gardens, Kingston 11, and 13-year-old Romain Brown of Cypress Hall district in Red Hills, St Andrew, to contact 911 or the nearest police station.

Both teenagers have been reported missing since Saturday, December 8.

The police say Tahise is of dark complexion, medium build and is about 165 centimetres (5 feet 5 inches) tall.

Reports from the Olympic Gardens Police are that the child was last seen at home wearing a pink and white polka dot dress about 10:00pm, and has not been heard from since.

Meanwhile, Romain, who is of dark complexion, medium build and is about 152 centimetres (5 feet) tall, was last seen at home about 7:00 am, wearing a white shirt, brown pants and a pair of blue and white sneakers.

Under the Ananda Alert system, when a child goes missing, a report is made to the nearest police station or by calling 119. The police then alerts stakeholders such as media houses, local authorities, mobile companies, and parish councils.

As part of the alert system, photos of the missing child are to be mounted on electronic/mobile billboards, and in common public areas such as supermarkets, shops, churches, post offices, and community centres.
