Police are appealing for information from the public to help find a missing teenage boy from Runcorn.
Ellis Clegg has been missing since around 11pm on Wednesday 13 October.
The 15-year-old was last seen in the Windmill Hill area of Runcorn the following morning.
Ellis, who has links to the Liverpool and Manchester areas, is described as white, around 5’ 11” tall with a slim build.
He has brown curly hair and when he was last seen he was wearing a black North Face jacket, black jogging bottoms and black flip-flops.
Inspector Shaun Pyke said: “Officers have been searching for Ellis since he was reported as missing, so far to no avail, and we are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.
“I urge anyone who thinks that they may have seen him since he went missing to come forward.
“The same goes for anyone with information regarding his whereabouts, or CCTV or dashcam footage of him that was recorded after his last sighting on the morning of Thursday 14 October.
“He is from Runcorn and was last seen in the Windmill Hill area of the town.
“At the present time we believe that he is most likely in Runcorn, though he does have links to the Liverpool and Manchester areas.
“If you or anyone you know has any information or footage that may help us find Ellis, please get in touch. We are very worried about him.
“I would also like to appeal directly to Ellis to get in touch and let us know that you are safe and well.”
Anyone with information or footage that may aid the ongoing search for Ellis is asked to call Cheshire Constabulary on 101, quoting IML 1108035.
