He was last seen wearing his school Central Foundation Boys' School uniform - black trousers and black blazer with the red school badge on it and a red and black striped tie and is likely to have a red Nike rucksack and black NYC rucksack.
Any one who has seen Mohamed or who knows of his whereabouts are asked to call police via 101.
The Labour MP who resigned from the shadow cabinet after her white van Rochester tweet has said she "got it wrong" as a flag of St George was tied to railings outside her London home.
Emily Thornberry, the former shadow attorney general, stood down after facing criticism for her photo that appeared to ridicule a Rochester home with three large England flags draped across the front of the house.
The Islington South MP spoke to reporters outside her house before cycling off to Parliament.
Nigel Farage has accused Labour of becoming "increasingly anti-English" despite Ed Miliband's swift action over Emily Thornberry's controversial Rochester tweet.
Ms Thornberry resigned from her position as shadow attorney general within hours of the tweet, which appeared to ridicule a white van-owning England fan, after two meetings with Mr Miliband.
But Mr Farage said the Labour leader was ineffective at turning the mood of a party he suggested now acted against England's interests.
I doubt they can make those inroads under this leader. I mean Labour has increasingly become anti-English over time, happy to pander in every way to Scotland, but somehow this Labour Party or new Labour believes that any sense of English identity is disreputable and wrong.
Labour MP Emily Thornberry did the "right thing" to resign from the shadow cabinet after sending a tweet appearing to ridicule a home owner in Rochester, shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander has told Good Morning Britain.
