Police are appealing for information about the whereabouts of a teenager who has gone missing.

Declan Edwards, 16, was last seen by a friend in Towneley Park in Burnley at about 2pm on Sunday.

Declan is described as white, 6-ft 1-ins tall, slim build, with straight short blond hair.

He was last seen wearing a grey Nike sweat shirt and grey Nike jogging bottoms and white and pink Nike trainers.

He may also be in possession of a black coloured, lightweight jacket with yellow coloured Lyle and Scott motif on the front.

Sgt Leah Rice, of Lancashire Police, said: “Declan has not been seen for a couple of days and this is out of character for him, we are growing increasingly concerned about him and I would appeal for anyone who sees him or knows where he might be to get in touch.

"I would also appeal to Declan himself to contact us if he sees this appeal just to let us know he is safe.”

Anyone with information should contact Lancashire Police.
