Search continues for two missing children in Tokat
DHA photoOfficials continued on Jan. 4 to search for two children who have been missing for seven days in the Reşadiye district of the Tokat province of northern Turkey.
Two friends, Dursun Kaan Taşcı, 5, and Bayram Erol, 8, went missing after going outside to play and were last seen in a play garden in Reşadiye.
Gendermerie forces continued to search for the two children in the surrounding area and in the district’s Kelkit Stream on Jan. 3, while police officers also searched for them in the nearby forested area.
Bayram Erol, the grandfather of the missing Bayram Erol, told reporters on Jan. 4 that the children might have been kidnapped.
“Our children may have been kidnapped. Someone might have seen them. If so, please call us. Those who kidnapped them might be holding them, afraid [of being caught]. But we won’t issue a formal complaint, please just leave them somewhere and go,” he said, appealing to the potential kidnappers.
