THE family of a teenager missing from home for more than five weeks have urged him to make their New Year hopes come true by returning home.
Seventeen-year-old James Dollery left his home at Sunnymead in Waterloo on November 19 and was last seen walking across the nearby Morrisons supermarket car park.
He needs to take regular medication, but has none with him and his family is getting ever more frantic about his safety.
His 22-year-old sister Ella Moh has revealed that police divers are now planning to search Fenay Beck near his home to check that James has not fallen in there.
She said: "I am very scared now. I miss my brother very much. He is my best friend and always will be.
"My mother and grandparents are extremely concerned and upset.
"This is the first time James has not contacted home for even a day.
"Now it has been five weeks."
James was born and brought up in the Cambridgeshire village of Soham which was at the centre of the recent murder trial when Ian Huntley was convicted of murdering schoolgirls Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells.
He moved to Huddersfield with his mother Pauline and Ella when he was about seven. He later attended Almondbury High School.
Pauline said: "James had gone out earlier to get some cigarettes and then spent a couple of hours watching TV before he said he was popping out again, but this time he never came back. He looked fine and there was nothing unusual about him."
James left with no money or change of clothes and his bank account has not been touched since he vanished.
James is 6ft 2in tall, wears a silver chain around his neck and smokes Regal cigarettes.
When last seen he was wearing a grey Ben Sherman zip-up jacket and a grey woolly hat - along with black tracksuit bottoms and grey slip-on trainers.
James has a great love of Carlisle, Newcastle and Scotland and may have headed in that direction. But he could have gone back to the Soham area which he never wanted to leave.
Ella, who now lives in Nottingham, added: "I am becoming increasingly worried about his safety.
"Hospitals around the country have been alerted and are aware that James may turn up there.
"Police nationwide are also aware of his disappearance."
She said detectives had looked at the case, but decided there were no suspicious circumstances and James remains listed as a missing person.
Ella said: "The police have said it is one of the most unusual disappearances they have dealt with because there are no leads as to where he may have gone."
She added: "It is vital that anyone who may have seen him in the past few weeks lets the police know.
"He is a wonderful person and needs to be found for his own safety.
"I find it hard to believe he is still in the Huddersfield area, but I'm sure he must have been seen leaving here if he has gone elsewhere.
"Perhaps someone gave him a lift or has seen him on public transport or even walking alongside a motorway.
"He is only 17, but does look older, perhaps 23."
