POLICE have issued a missing persons appeal to help find a missing teenage boy from Weymouth.

Brandon Falshaw-Skelly, aged 16, was reported missing at 12.35am on Saturday October 23 after he had last been seen at around 8.30pm on Friday October 22 in the area of the town centre.

Brandon is described as white, five feet ten inches tall and of slim build with very short hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue tracksuit bottoms, a black Adidas T-shirt, a black DKNY puffer coat and trainers.

Chief Inspector Glen Doran, of Dorset Police, said: “Brandon has not been seen or heard from since he was last seen in Weymouth and due to his young age, we are keen to locate him to make sure he is safe and well.

“It is believed that Brandon suggested he may be travelling to Poole before he left so we would also ask everyone in the town and surrounding areas to please report any sightings.

“I would urge anyone with information as to his whereabouts, or who has seen a teenage boy matching the description given, to please come forward.

“I am also making a direct plea to Brandon if you see this appeal to please make contact with us and let us know where you are as we just want to ensure you are all right.”

Anyone with information or knowledge as to Brandon’s whereabouts is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting incident number 23:26.
