Concern for 14-year-old boy missing from Romford


Police are concerned for the welfare of a 14-year-old boy who is missing from home in Romford.

Christopher Ugwu, 14, (13.12.04) was last seen by a family member at 1400hrs on Sunday, 29 September, at his home address.

Subsequent enquires have established that Christopher has used buses and trains to travel to Enfield, Crystal Palace and Brixton. He caught a bus from Crystal Palace station towards Brixton early on the morning of Tuesday, 1 September.

He is described as a black boy, 5ft 10ins in height and of stocky build, with short cropped hair and patchy stubble. He was wearing a blue hooded cardigan and grey chinos with black Nike trainers.

Officers are especially concerned as Christopher has autism and is unlikely to ask for assistance.

Anyone who may have seen Christopher is asked to call police on 101 quoting 4773/sep29.
