POLICE are urging a missing Moldgreen teenager to contact his parents.

Alex Daniel Sykes, 15, failed to return home from school on March 25 and has not been seen by his parents since.

Appeals for information about his whereabouts were run in the Examiner on April 8 and 9, but Alex has not returned home.

He phoned his parents on March 10 to say he was staying with a girlfriend in Golcar, but has not called again.

A police spokesman said: "Presumably Alex is safe , but we need to see him to confirm he is all right.

"We would urge him to contact his parents or the police again and say he's safe. If he has got any worries about coming home, they can be ironed out."

Alex has links and family in Honley and friends in Lockwood. He is 5ft 4in and slim, with short, brown hair. When last seen he was wearing a blue sweatshirt, navy trousers and blue trainers.
