A MOTHER has made a desperate plea for her teenage son to get in contact after he went missing more than a week ago.

Tylor Evans, 19, of Catchpole Way, Stanton, disappeared after catching a bus into Bury St Edmunds on Tuesday, March 17.

He told his family he was going to the Connexions centre in the town and was last seen by friends at around 4pm.

He said he was going to see a girlfriend, but did not return home, where he lives with his 21-year-old sister, and has not been in touch since.

His worried mother, Lesley Morgan, said her son suffered from dyspraxia - a condition that affects language and thought - which can make him vulnerable.

She said Tylor was a typical teenager and made friends with people very easily, but she is concerned his naivety may have got him involved the wrong crowd.

“If anybody has seen him or knows of his whereabouts, just get him to get in contact,” she added.

“This is the first time I have known him doing anything like this. He could be dead somewhere for all I know.”

There is also mystery surrounding Tylor's Facebook page, which has been updated since he went missing, but Mrs Morgan, 41, believes it could not possibly have been written by him.

She said: “His spelling is not very good, but the status update that was left on Monday had no spelling mistakes in it whatsoever.

“It was not something he would say. It is leaving me to think it did not come from Tylor.

“I have left my phone number on Facebook, but I have heard nothing at all.”

Tylor moved in with his sister, Tasha Holmes, her husband and their two daughters - Ryleigh-Nicole, three, and 19-month-old Amee-Jayde - around six months ago.

Mrs Morgan, who lives in Middlesex, said Mrs Holmes is deeply concerned and the young children have sensed that Tylor is missing.

Previously, Tylor had been living with his father in Barry, Wales, where the family originates, but moved to Suffolk to pursue a career in the RAF.

Unfortunately, he did not pass an entry test at RAF Honington and went on to work for Domino's Pizza in Bury St Edmunds.

Tylor is 6ft 4ins, of slim build with cropped short dark brown hair and has a Welsh accent.

At the time of his disappearance, he was wearing a dark blue New York baseball cap, dark blue jeans, a brown 'No Fear' hooded jacket and white Reebok trainers with camouflage caps.

Mrs Morgan is urging Tylor or anyone who might know where he is to call her on 07900 250478.

Alternatively, anyone with information should call Ixworth police station on 01284 774100.
