Police launch appeal in hunt for missing 13-year-old boy from Dudley
12:05pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
POLICE have released details of a 13-year-old boy who has been missing from his home in Dudley for two-and-a-half weeks.
Officers believe Jacob Butler, who has been missing before, may be staying with family or friends but despite extensive enquiries, he has not yet been found.
The teenager disappeared from his home on St James Road at some point between Friday 2 and Saturday August 3.
He is described as white, four-feet-ten, with short straight dark brown hair. Jacob is of slim build and has a gold stud in his left ear as well as a silver stud in his lower lip.
It is thought he could be wearing black Nike tracksuit bottoms, a blue t-shirt with white speckles and a purple hoody.
Pc Graham Lowe, from Dudley Police, said: "We know Jacob packed his clothes into a bag and left of his own accord. Our strong suspicions are that he's staying with someone he knows but I am appealing for anyone who has seen him to contact us."
Anyone with any information should contact Dudley Police on 101 or the independent charity Missing People on 116 000.
