Police are appealing to trace a missing boy from Cheltenham.

Billy Taylor, 14, left his family home on Saturday night (Feb 6) and has not returned since. He was reported missing yesterday (Feb 8).

Officers believe Billy has been with friends and that his disappearance was not the result of a criminal act. But concern is growing because of his age and vulnerability.

There was an unconfirmed sighting of Billy in the Hester's Way area of Cheltenham yesterday but officers say that Billy has links to Gloucester and could also be there.

Billy is described as white, 5ft 2ins tall, of slim build and with short straight brown hair. He is possibly wearing a blue Nike tracksuit and navy blue Van shoes.

The Duchess of Cornwall will visit the new outreach centre of a hospice providing vital services to local communities.

Camilla will tour Prospect Hospice's new facility at Savernake Hospital in the Wiltshire market town of Marlborough, which gives care and support to patients, carers and families dealing with terminal illness.

The local community rallied together and raised the target total of £260,000 in under four months and the centre's doors were opened in October last year.

During the visit the Duchess, who is the hospice's president, will meet some of the fundraisers who supported the campaign as well as staff, patients, carers and families who are now using the new facilities.

Camilla will also visit Forest and Sandridge Church of England Primary School, in the nearby town of Melksham to officially open its new building.

Work on the new school began in October 2014 and was completed last September, in time for the start of the new school year.

The Duchess will tour the new facilities, meeting staff and students along the way and her visit will end with Camilla attending a school assembly.
