Police in Harrogate are worried for a teenage boy who has gone missing.

Ewan Corbett, who is 14-years-old, was last seen at his house by his carers in the village of Fellbeck between Ripon and Pateley Bridge during the early evening of Sunday 17 March.

He is believed to have left the house and travelled to Harrogate.

Officers are becoming concerned for Ewan’s welfare and are urging people to keep an eye out and report any sightings of him.

Ewan is:

  • White
  • 5 feet 7 inches tall
  • Of slim build
  • Brown shaven hair
  • Blue eyes
  • Last seen wearing a dark-coloured hooded-top and black tracksuit bottoms

"We are increasingly concerned for Ewan‘s safety and wish to trace him urgently.

"We believe that he may be seeking accommodation either within Harrogate or somewhere outside of the District and that he does not have the means to fend for himself, particularly in view of current adverse weather conditions.

"We are currently trying to establish how Ewan got to Harrogate on Sunday, what his intentions are and who he is with.

"Ewan has friends and contacts throughout North Yorkshire, particularly in Harrogate, Scarborough and Northallerton, as well as outside of the county, but so far enquiries with people he may have contacted have been unsuccessful.”

– Inspector Andy Chapman, North Yorkshire Police

Anyone with information that can help the search for Ewan Corbett is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 1 – and pass information to the Force Control Room.
