BEIRUT: Relatives of a 10-year-old boy, who has been missing since Saturday, suspect that the child could have been kidnapped, the National News Agency reported Sunday.

Hussein Darwish went missing late Saturday when he was on his way to his grandfather's house in Shamstar neighborhood in the east town of Baalbek, his parents said.

The state-run agency said that Darwish's relatives believe that the boy could have been kidnapped because his shoes were spotted on the streets.
