Sussex Police are appealing for help to find a 16-year-old boy who has gone missing from Horsham. Celso Dias had been staying in the Sussex town, and was on his way to Brighton when he was last seen on the morning of Thursday 28th May. He was travelling by train and told the person he was with that he was going to use the toilet, but failed to return.

The teenager is originally from London. Police say he may have got off the train at Haywards Heath and travelled to the Capital.

"Celso has connections on the South London area and we believe he might have returned there. He is 16 but acts much younger and we need to check he is safe.

"He was last seen around 9.30am on a train from Three Bridges to Brighton. He is described as black with a shaved head and is 5' 6". He was wearing a black Nike tracksuit and carrying an Adidas bag."

Concerns over community alarm service

The effectiveness of a community alarm system is being questioned Credit: ITV Meridian

It's designed to help the elderly and the frail in an emergency. But tonight, there are questions over the effectiveness of a community alarm service.

When 86 year old Robert Priest collapsed at his home and pressed his panic button, it took over an hour for paramedics to arrive. CareLink Plus has apologised for the delay, but says it can't always send an ambulance immediately.

"Our highly professional CareLInk Plus staff work very hard to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our customers. With regard to Mr Priest’s recent incident there was a delay in getting help to him due to an issue with his keyholders that we hadn’t previously been made aware of. We have apologised to Mr Priest for the delay and the distress this may have caused".
