Police are appealing to the public for help to trace a missing boy from Runcorn.
Thomas Robinson was last seen at around 5pm on Tuesday 28 June in the Castlefields area of the town.
The 12-year-old is described as white, around 5’ tall, with mousy blonde hair.
He was last seen wearing a blue Nike bubble jacket, grey tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.
Thomas resides in Runcorn and also has a number of links to Liverpool and St Helens.
Superintendent Michael Evans said: “Thomas is a vulnerable young child, and we are concerned for his welfare and his family are distraught.
“Enquiries to locate him have been ongoing since his disappearance, so far to no avail.
“The 12-year-old was last seen in the Castlefields area of Runcorn and we have also had reported sightings of him in the Moss Bank area of St Helens.

“I would urge anyone who thinks that they may have seen Thomas since he went missing to get in touch.
“The same goes for anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage of him since he disappeared.
“I would also appeal directly to Thomas to contact us to let us know that you are safe and well.”
