Two young brothers who were reported missing after heading to a local park yesterday afternoon have been found safe by Calgary Police officers.

Ijaz and Youseff Shah, who are both under the age of 12, had not been seen since around 4 p.m in the Applewood area of southeast Calgary on Monday, May 9, but the boys have been located safely, Calgary Police confirmed.

In a tweet, police thanked the media and public for sharing information about the missing boys.

Ijaz, who is 11 years old and Youseff, 9, were reported missing after they were seen near Appleside Close Southeast on their way to a local park.

Ijaz was described as 4 feet, 5 inches tall, with short black hair, and he was wearing a black tracksuit, a green jacket and black shoes. Youseff is also 4 feet, 5 inches tall, with medium-length black hair, and was wearing a black tracksuit and a green jacket.

The boys were also wearing backpacks; one was green and white and the other was blue and white.

Calgary Police released photos of the boys and urged the public to share any information they may have on the whereabouts of the brothers.

Police said that while the case didn't "meet the threshold" for an amber alert, they worked with the Missing Children Society of Canada to locate the boys as quickly as possible.

Police have not released any other details since the boys were reported safe on Tuesday.
