Harrogate police are appealing for the public’s help to find a teenager who has gone missing from Fellbeck between Ripon and Pateley Bridge.
Ewan Corbett, aged 14, was last seen at his by his carers in the village during the early evening of Sunday, March 17.
He is believed to have left the house of his own accord and travelled to Harrogate.
Officers are becoming concerned for Ewan’s welfare and are urging people to keep an eye out and report any sightings of him.
Ewan is described as white, around 5ft 7in tall, with a slim build, brown shaven hair and blue eyes. When he was last seen he was wearing a dark-coloured hooded-top and black tracksuit bottoms.
Inspector Andy Chapman, of North Yorkshire Police, said: “We are increasingly concerned for Ewan‘s safety and wish to trace him urgently.
“We believe that he may be seeking accommodation either within Harrogate or somewhere outside of the district and that he does not have the means to fend for himself, particularly in view of current adverse weather conditions.
“We are currently trying to establish how Ewan got to Harrogate on Sunday, what his intentions are and who he is with.
“Ewan has friends and contacts throughout North Yorkshire, particularly in Harrogate, Scarborough and Northallerton, as well as outside of the county, but so far enquiries with people he may have contacted have been unsuccessful.”
Anyone with information that can help the search for Ewan Corbett is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 1 – and pass information to the Force Control Room.
