19 August 2013, 15:08

Coastguards who were searching for two missing boys on the Isle of Wight say the search has been stood down and it's not thought there are any children in danger.

The boys, aged six and eight, were reported missing after they were last seen on the seafront at Ryde this lunchtime.

A Hampshire police spokesman said the force was alerted at 1.21pm by Solent Coastguard and said the boys were last seen near local landmark Appley Tower.

However, just after 4pm, the search was called off.

In a tweet, the Maritime and Coastguard agency said:

"We've searched the sea and shore and we now don't think there are two kids in danger. Search stood down. Thanks to everyone for their help".
