Police are appealing for help in tracing a 16-year-old boy from Ipswich who is missing.


Connor Smith was reported missing yesterday after he failed to return home after going to stay with friends six days previously.

His family spoke to him on Saturday and he said he would be home the following day, but he did not say where he was or who he was with.

Connor is white, about 5ft 4ins, of slim build, with short brown spiky hair.

A Suffolk police spokeswoman said: “Connor has been reported as missing on previous occasions but due to his age there are concerns for his welfare and police would like to hear from anyone who has seen him, or knows of his whereabouts.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the duty sergeant at Ipswich police on 101.
