Police are appealing for help tracing a teenager who has gone missing from Eastbourne.
Irfan Ullah, 16, was last seen at his home in Vancouver Road at 11.30am on January 12 after he said he was going out to play football.
Irfan, who is also known as Safi and is originally from Afghanistan, is 5’ 8” and very skinny with dark brown hair.
When he was last seen, he was wearing a beige leather jacket and sandy coloured trousers.
Sergeant Lynda Lynch said, “We are becoming increasingly concerned for Irfan because of his age. We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen him or who knows where he is.”
