The two were last seen in Riverstone by a family member on Thursday 22 October at around 10.40pm.

In a statement, police said the pair were reported missing to Quakers Hill Police and an investigation commenced, however since they had been reported missing, they had been sighted by family members.

“Attempts to contact the pair have been unsuccessful, and while they have been sighted by other family members since being reported as missing, police and family still hold concerns for their welfare due to their age,” police said in a statement.

Hayleigh and Luke are known to frequent the Dean Park area, NSW Police said.

Both siblings are described as being of Caucasian appearance with thin builds and a fair complexion.

Hayleigh is between 140 to 145cm tall and blonde hair, while Luke is between 170 to 175cm tall with short brown hair.
