Police say a teenager who has been missing for almost a week could be in the Bath area.

Ryan Ranson from Ivybridge was reported missing after failing to turn up for work at Devonport Dockyard on Tuesday 20 January.

The 17-year-old was last seen on CCTV using his bank card at a cash point machine at Paddington train station in London, on Friday 23 January, shortly before 10.15am.

He bought a ticket to Bath Spa station.

Officers are making enquiries in Bath and London, as well as in Torbay and Blackpool after Ryan’s bank card was used there last week before he travelled to Paddington.

It’s been nearly a week now since Ryan went missing and his family are extremely concerned about him.

This is the first time he has gone missing and his disappearance is completely out of character.

There have been no sightings of Ryan since last Friday in London. We don’t know whether he is now in Bath, has returned to Devon or has gone somewhere else.

We are continuing to make enquiries to find him and would like to speak to anyone who sees Ryan or knows where he is.
