Police are asking for public help to locate a 10-year-old who was last seen Tuesday in North Preston.

Halifax RCMP said Ashayo Johnson was last seen wearing a blue raised jacket with black sweatpants and light blue sneakers.

Police say Ashayo is described as being black, 4 feet tall and 75 pounds with dark hair and dark eyes.

“When someone disappears, it has profound and far-reaching consequences for the person and those who know them,” the Nova Scotia RCMP said in a press release Tuesday.

“We ask people to spread the word through social media with respect.”

Around 9.45 on Wednesday, an emergency alarm was issued about the missing child.

In a post on social media later this morning, the RCMP said the emergency alert was issued in the Halifax Regional Municipality and Hants region due to the boy’s age and weather conditions.
