Schoolboy Daniel Entwistle disappeared from near his home at Copperfield Avenue in Great Yarmouth on Saturday 3rd May 2003, a Bank Holiday weekend.

Detectives are appealing for anyone with any new information about his disappearance to come forward. At the time a large scale search operation began, but Daniel was never found.

The last sighting of Daniel was on CCTV at Blencowes, a local convenience store near to his home at around 5.05pm.

Daniel's red BMX bike was found abandoned near to the river close to Trinity Quay the day after he disappeared.

We hope that the 10 year anniversary of the disappearance of Daniel may help jog the memory of anyone who believes they have vital, fresh information to help us piece together exactly what happened to him.

Daniel would have been a teenager now and the last few years have been a heart-breaking time for his family who have had to live with the fact that he has never been found and therefore had no closure.
