Missing teen may be meeting internet contact

POLICE are today growing concerned for the safety of a 14-year-old boy who has been missing from home for three days and may be with someone he met on the internet.

Adam Spaul left his home on Friday and told his mum he was staying with a friend, but when she called to check he was OK she was told he wasn’t there.

The teenager, from Lowestoft, has been missing before but has always returned within 24 hours.

Although he has been in touch with friends and family over the weekend, police are concerned for his well-being because of his age and the fact he only had a small amount of cash with him.

Adam is described as having a dark European complexion, is around 5ft 7ins tall, of slim build and has short dark hair.
