Police are appealing for assistance in tracing a missing 16-year-old boy from Ipswich.

Connor Smith was reported missing to police yesterday, Sunday 27 April, after failing to return home after going to stay with friends six days previously.

He was spoken to by a family member on Saturday 26 April and said he would be home the following day, but did not reveal with whom or where he was staying.

Connor is described as white, around 5ft 4ins tall, of slim build, with brown short spiky hair.

Connor has been reported as missing on previous occasions but due to his age there are concerns for his welfare and police would like to hear from anyone who has seen him, or knows of his whereabouts.

Anyone with information should call the duty sergeant at Ipswich Police on 101.
