Missing boy, 8, thought to be in Dublin after failing to board plane out of Liverpool An eight-year-old boy missing from Liverpool is thought to be in Dublin after failing to board a plane. Merseyside Police are urgently trying to trace Andrei Stoian, aged eight, and mum Georgeta who have gone missing after both did not turn up for a booked European flight out of Liverpool's John Lennon Airport in late May, Liverpool Echo reports. Officers want to ensure both of them are safe after they went missing from their home in Tranmere.
Speaking on the show yesterday family friend Mary said: “The woman [Santina’s mam] is in shock and so are her other children.
“It’s a dreadfully hard thing to explain to them. Bridgee was in the hospital when Santina died, she was in her arms when she died.
“She’s been left with four small children and she doesn’t have the money so I thought I could get some help for her.
“Santina was a beautiful little girl, she was a nice little happy child. Her mother and her grandmother are lovely people and she was just like them.
“The support for them is overwhelming.
“They were picking out a little coffin for her, it was heartbreaking.
“The family are just barely scraping by and her family need some donations for this funeral.
