The “extremely worried” family of a boy who went missing from his home nearly 14 weeks ago say he is believed to have travelled to west London.

Police are appealing for help to trace Junaid Hamayun, 17, who is reported to have left his home to go to college in Derbyshire on October 8 but never returned.

The investigation into the boy, who is believed to have been sleeping rough, was transferred to the Metropolitan Police after he was reportedly spotted in the Southall area of Ealing on December 17.

Police said they conducted extensive CCTV enquiries since then but as yet there has been no futher trace of the missing teenager.

Scotland Yard is still working to establish why he may have travelled to Ealing.

Police said is not believed to have any family or acquaintances in London and it is unknown as to whether he may have since moved on.

His mum Noreen has pleaded with him to get in touch with someone.

She told The Derby Telegraph: “Please get in touch, we all love you so much, miss you and want you back in our family.

“It doesn’t matter what has happened, I’m not cross or angry I’m just really scared right now. Please just let somebody know where you are and that you are safe.

“If that isn’t me that you call that is fine – just please call someone. We all love you so much. Please come home.”

Anyone who sees Junaid, or has information as to his whereabouts, is asked to call 101 reference 21MIS034041.
