Missing boy appeal
Police say they are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 14-year-old boy who has gone missing from home in Appley Bridge, but may have travelled elsewhere in the UK.
Damian Howes was last seen at around 7pm on August 4 in Wigan town centre.
He has links to Croydon, Carlisle, Westcliffe-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea and Chelmsford, and may well have travelled to one of these areas.
PC Paddy Stewart, of Skelmersdale Police, said: “We are extremely worried about Damian and need to find him to make sure he is safe and well.” Anybody with information is asked to contact police on 101.
