The parents of missing Membury teenager Arthur Heeler-Frood appeared on ITV’s This Morning prorgamme today (Tuesday, November 8) to make a fresh appeal for him to get in touch.

Caroline and Jeremy Heeler-Frood have not seen their 15-year-old son since he left home to cycle to Colyton Grammar School nine weeks ago.

Arthur’s mum, Caroline, recently appealed directly to him: “We’re missing you terribly. We don’t know that you are safe or what situation you’re in. I don’t think you realise how hard it is for us, please make contact.”

Police are appealing specifically to anyone who may have employed Arthur, accommodated him, or who may have provided him with transport to get in touch.

Superintendent Sam de Reya said: “We are appealing to business owners, likely to be restaurateurs, hoteliers and cafe owners who may have had a young man work for them in the last few months or anyone who may have provided accommodation to him in that time period.”

Arthur went missing after leaving his family home in Axminster on the morning of Tuesday 6 September 2016 and failed to turn up to school.

His parents received a note from Arthur the day after he disappeared, stating that he was going away for a while.

He is described as white, 5ft 4in tall, of slight build with short, light brown hair. Arthur may now have considerably shorter hair, possibly shaven.

Police wish to hear from anyone who may have employed, accommodated, or transported Arthur over the last nine weeks.

If you have information, please contact police by calling 101 or emailing 101@dc.police.uk quoting log 255 of 14th September.
