POLICE are appealing for help to trace a teenager whose last known whereabouts were in Southall.

Junaid Hamayun, 17, is reported to have left his home to go to college in Derbyshire on October 8. He did not return home as expected.

Two months later, the investigation was transferred to the Met Police after he was sighted in Southall.

Police have looked at lots of CCTV footage, but there has been no further trace of Junaid.

He is not believed to have any family or acquaintances in London and it's not known if he has since moved on.

Officers have spoken to Junaid's family who are extremely worried for his safety. They have urged him to make contact and let them know he is OK.

Anyone who sees Junaid, or has information about him, is asked to call 101 reference 21MIS034041.
