Police are seeking help from the public to locate a teenage boy missing from the Tweed Heads area yesterday.

When he didn’t return as expected, he was reported missing to officers from Tweed/Byron Police District who commenced inquiries to locate him.

Concerns are held for his welfare due to his age and suffering medical conditions.

He was last seen wearing blue and red ‘Fila’ tracksuit pants, white ‘Nike’ shirt and a blue ‘Nike’ cap.
