A 'MISSING' teenager who told police to 'shove their warrant' after they put out an appeal on social media has been found. 

Officers said 16-year-old Joel Fricker was last seen at around 8pm on October 9 in the Adelaide Terrace area of Blackburn.

But the teenager commented on the post saying he was 'clearly not missing just wanted'.

In a further social media post on his page he wrote: "We both know I'm not missing tho don't we??

"You have been struggling to find me for four weeks, shove your warrant."

A Lancashire Police spokesman said he was found on Tuesday morning.

He said: "A 16-year-old boy was arrested for failing to appear for warrant."
