The mother of a Felixstowe teenager who is believed to be missing with another boy from Bury St Edmunds has appealed for her son to come home.

Angela Stevens, mother of 14-year-old Jamie, said she was “still worrying” about her son, who was last seen at Bury St Edmunds train station at 10am on April 1.

Jamie, from Felixstowe, is thought to be with 15-year-old Freddie Taylor, another missing boy from Bury St Edmunds.

It was initially believed the pair may be together in London, but they are now thought to be in the Braintree area of Essex. They also have links to Tiverton in Devon and Yeovil in Somerset.

Appealing for her son to “just come home,” Ms Stevens said she had “no idea” why he had disappeared.

“It is worrying for any parent knowing their children are out there,” she said.
