A teenager from Pevensey has been missing for nearly three weeks and police say they are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.
Jake Decker, 15, pictured, was last seen near Seaside Road, Eastbourne at around 2.35pm on February 7.
He has connections to Eastbourne and it is believed that he may have been staying in the town, although he has been known to gravitate towards Brighton when he has gone missing before.
He is described as white, 5’ 5”, slim with short black hair and blue eyes.
He occasionally smokes, has a lisp and often wears a dark silver chain with a cross pendant.
Police are keen to locate Jake due to his age.
Anyone who sees him or knows of his whereabouts is asked to call Sussex Police on 101, quoting serial 975 of February 7.
