Police have appealed to the public to help find a missing teenager from Wembley, Brent, whose disappearance is completely out of character.
Rashid Elsafi-Bakkr, 14, from the Wembley area, was last seen at his home address at about 10pm on Sunday, 20 March. He is reported as missing on Monday, 21 March.
Officers and his family are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.
Detective Inspector Wendy Bassett, from the North West area’s Public Protection team, said: “We are really worried about Rashid. This is completely out of character for him, he has never gone missing before. He was last seen at his home address on Sunday evening and he has not been seen or heard from since. He has not turned up for school, which is very unlike him.
“Rashid, if you are reading this, please know that you are not in any trouble. We, like your family, just want to know that you are safe.”
Anyone who sees Rashid or has any information regarding his whereabouts is urged to call police on 999 quoting 22MIS009512.
