POLICE are becoming increasingly concerned about a 15-year-old boy who has gone missing.

Lewis Edwards, who lives in Garstang, was last seen at around midday yesterday (Monday) in Rivington.

Officers said he did not return home to Garstang, but has links to Rawtenstall, Preston, Horwich and Birkenhead and may have travelled to one of those areas.

PC Natalie Craddock said: “We are becoming increasingly concerned about Lewis and would like to hear from anybody who knows where he is, or thinks they may have seen him.

"Similarly we would urge Lewis – if he sees this appeal – to contact us as soon as possible to let us know he is safe.”

Lewis is described as white, of thin build, around 5ft 6ins tall, with short, dark brown hair. He speaks with a Liverpool accent.

He was last seen wearing a white polo shirt, black trousers and a black coat.

Anybody with information should contact 101, quoting log number 564 of September 18.
