Police in the New Forest are growing increasingly concerned for the safety of a 17-year-old boy from Frogham after he disappeared.
Ross Haughey was last seen at around 1.30pm on Sunday when he left his home in Abbotswell Road telling his parents he was going for a walk. He did not return.
Police say Ross regularly likes to walk in the Forest but usually comes back after a few hours. He usually uses the paths and tracks towards Fritham near the streams, Hyde Farm Shop or around the Gorley area however he is fit and used to walking long distances so may have gone further afield.
It’s not known why he has not returned and officers say they are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare. He sometimes suffers from depression but was thought to be fine when he left for his walk.
