[P]OLICE are growing increasingly concerned for a missing 16-year-old boy who is believed to be in Preston.
Joseph Alderson was last seen at around 4.40pm on September 28th at an address in Norbury Junction, Stafford. However he is thought to have since made his way to Preston.
Officers would like to locate him and would ask anybody who has seen him, or knows where he may be, to contact police as soon as possible.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said: “We are extremely concerned for Joseph’s welfare and would like to locate him as a matter of urgency. If you know where he is, or think you have seen him, we would ask you to get in touch straight away. Similarly we would urge Joseph himself – if he sees this appeal – to contact us to let us know he is safe.”
Joseph is described as white, around 5ft 10ins, of slim build, with short, light-brown hair cut in a ‘Mohican’ style.
