Police officers are urging members of the public to help find a 10-year-old Hong Kong boy with dyslexia who has been missing since Sunday on Lantau Island.

Dyslexia is a learning disability in children where they may have trouble with reading comprehension, spelling and writing.

Ho Yau-yip has been living at the Island Hostel home for boys with behavioral and emotional problems in Shek Pik for more than six months.

Ho had joined his family in Tin Shui Wai during the Easter holiday, HK01.com reported. He returned to the hostel on Saturday, but had left the next day.

Ho’s mother, who has four children, posted a message on social media on Tuesday, appealing for the public to help help find her son.

She said Ho could show up in Kwai Fong, Langham Place in Mong Kok, Olympian City in Tai Kok Tsui, Sheung Shui and Tin Shui Wai, where he had spent his holiday break with her.

Ho was last seen in blue trainers, a T-shirt and jeans, and carrying a water bottle. Ho’s family can be reached by calling Mr Kan on 6083 3730 or Ms Ho on 6083 3731.

Update: Missing boy, 10, found in Tin Shui Wai, 55.3km from Lantau
