    Two children are missing and a frantic family and police are reaching out to the public for help.

    Seven-year-old Syncire McGovern was last seen with his 12-year-old Makyla Tucker at their home on the 3200 block of Byberry Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia just before 4 p.m. Friday.

    The siblings were headed to the nearby playground at Decatur School on Academy Road. They were expected to return home by 8 p.m., but never showed, according to police.

    Neither has reached out to their mother or been seen since.

    Police say that Makyla may have gone to a "Blackout Party" on the 9800 block of Bustleton Avenue.

    Makyla was last seen wearing a tan top and green plaid pants. Syncire was wearing a yellow shirt and blue and white checkered shorts.

    Anyone with information on the whereabouts of either child is urged to call police.
