Police say a 13-year-old boy in Essex is being "helped to stay missing by people he should not be with".

Archy Austin disappeared on July 10th.

Police say there have been a number of sightings of him in Basildon and they want to make sure he is safe.

He's described as 5ft tall and slim with short brown hair.
