Police yesterday (Wednesday) issued a fresh appeal for 15-year-old Colyton Grammar School student Arthur Heeler-Frood, who has not been seen since leaving his Membury home on the morning of Tuesday September 6.
The family of Arthur have released a further appeal asking their son to make contact.
Caroline and Jeremy Heeler-Frood have appealed directly to their son: “Arthur, we are desperately worried about you. Please make contact. We need to know you are safe. We can work out a solution if there is something troubling you.”
Inspector Antonia Weeks said: “Eight days have now passed since Arthur went missing.
“A large number of enquiries are being undertaken to identify any clue to his plans. Areas of interest are being searched by trained officers and information cascaded in press outlets is a key line of enquiry.
“Arthur has given no indication of his intentions before he disappeared but it is possible he has travelled away from the area.
“Arthur’s parents and family are understandably very concerned by his disappearance and simply wish to know he is safe. A significant community effort has taken place to seek information locally and further afield.
“Arthur may be trying to travel and he may have tried to change his appearance. He is 5’ 4” tall and of slight build. If anyone has any information about his whereabouts please contact Devon and Cornwall police quoting log 255 of 14th September 2016.”
If you see him or have any information, please contact police immediately quoting incident number 255 of September 14.
