Police in St Helens are appealing for help to trace a missing schoolboy.
William Perry, 13, has not been seen since Saturday evening but officers have only today gone public with an appeal.
William was last seen at his home in Hardshaw Street.
He is described as white, 5ft 2ins tall with short brown hair and brown eyes.
A police spokesman said: “He was last seen wearing a black coat, trousers and trainers.
“He is known to ride a black mountain bike and has links to the Breckside Park and Richmond Park areas of Anfield. He also has links to the Bootle area of Sefton.”
Anyone who has seen William since Saturday or knows where he is now is urged to call Merseyside Police on 101.
