Police say they are increasingly concerned for a schoolboy missing from home in Devon.

Arthur Heeler-Frood is missing from the Axminster area. The 15-year-old was last seen on his way to school early on Tuesday morning.

He is described as a white male, 5ft 4in tall, of slight build with short light brown hair. When he was last seen he was wearing his School uniform and carrying black rucksack.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "This is completely out of character for Arthur and due to his age police consider him vulnerable."

If you see him please contact police immediately and quote incident number 771 of 6th September
