Supt McAinsh asked people to "remain vigilant" and search the same places that they had checked the day before.

Search dogs and search teams have been deployed, and hundreds of people have joined police in the second day of the search for the three-year-old.

Police investigating his disappearance this morning said they were "deeply concerned" after searching through the night for him as temperatures plummeted to near freezing.

Volunteers who responded joined police, the fire service and specialist search teams and were briefed on how and where they should search.
