MINSK, October 6. / TASS /. The 10-year-old Belarusian boy Maksim Markhalyuk, who disappeared in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, has been put on the international wanted list, and Interpol has joined in his search. This was reported on Friday at the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus.
The child was put on the international wanted list after information appeared that he could be seen on the territory of Poland.
"The student is on the wanted list in all 192 member states of the international police organization. The General Secretariat of Interpol has issued a notice with a yellow corner - a search circular containing full information about the missing child," said the head of the national central bureau of Interpol, Alexander Petran.
According to him, all information received from the Belarusian law enforcement agencies is immediately processed through the channels of the department he represents. "Colleagues provide all-round assistance in locating the minor. Operational measures are taken immediately to verify any data that may help find the boy," Petran said.
A schoolboy from the agro-town Novy Dvor, Svisloch District, Grodno Region, on the evening of September 16, rode a bicycle towards the forest. Large-scale searches for the child, which involved law enforcement officers, internal troops, rescuers, forestry workers, representatives of public organizations and volunteers, have not yet led to the desired result. A criminal case was initiated into the disappearance of the minor.
