Missing boy Nathaniel Bower, aged 12, was last seen on Blundell Drive at Tweed Heads South about 12.15pm today (Tuesday 21 July 2020).

Police are appealing for public assistance to locate a boy missing for a second time in the space of a week, from Tweed Heads.

Nathaniel Bower, aged 12, was last seen on Blundell Drive at Tweed Heads South about 12.15pm today (Tuesday 21 July 2020).

Nathaniel went missing last week on Thursday July 16 and was located in the early hours of Monday this week (July 20).

The lad has gone missing again.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District were alerted and commenced inquiries when he couldn’t be located.

There are concerns for Nathaniel’s welfare, due to his age and the fact that he requires regular medication.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 155cm tall, with a slim build, light brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a black ‘Nike’ hat, a grey ‘FILA’ jumper, black tracksuit pants with white and red stripes, and light blue ‘Everlast’ slides.

Anyone who sees Nathaniel is urged to contact Tweed Heads Police: 07 5506 9499 or Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages
