A 12-year-old boy who has been found sleeping rough in the past is missing and police are now appealing for help to find him.

Darren Safo was last seen yesterday evening leaving a family members home.

Police say they are “very worried” as the fact he has been found sleeping rough before, coupled with his young age means they consider him to be very vulnerable.

Darren is black, 5ft 2ins tall, slim build, with short hair.

The 12-year-old was last seen wearing a black coat with a hood and black jogging bottoms with white lettering on the left side.
