Mother's hope to find missing son as police issue 'aged' efit 11 years on

Police have released an e-fit of what a teenage boy who went missing 11 years ago might look like today as part of a new appeal to find him.

Efit image of what Alexander Sloley may look like

Alexander Sloley, from Islington, north London, was 16 when he was reported missing in August 2008 and his family and friends have not heard from him since.

The accountancy student at City and Islington College had little money, no wallet and no bag with extra clothes to indicate he was planning to run away, police said.

Despite repeated appeals and inquiries, they have not been able to trace him.

He has not been spotted on CCTV and any possible sighting reports from the public as to his whereabouts all provided a negative outcome after being investigated, the Metropolitan Police said.

At the time of his disappearance, Alex was described as a light skinned black male, 5ft 5in and of medium build with striking blue eyes.

But as part of a new appeal to find him, the force has released an e-fit image of what it believes he would look like now, aged 27.

His mother, Nerissa Tivy, said it had been emotional seeing the e-fit of her son as an adult.

It's a great picture of Alex and of how he might possibly look like now. Then you try to put a body to it and how he might be dressed and looking. He was quite a slick dresser, my son, he wasn't scruffy.

There's no closure to this and, with all the appeals and knowing your child would not just run away, you start thinking something terrible has happened to him. I would love to see him walk through the door.
