    UK - Connor Beck, 8, Lochmaben, Scotland, 13 April 2016

    Police launch huge search for missing eight-year-old boy who left for primary school but never arrived


    Connor Beck left home in Lochmaben, Dumfries and Galloway today


    But he did not arrive at school, which is half a mile from his home


    Friends and family have been searching for the schoolboy


    He was wearing his school uniform, and has red hair and freckles




    A huge search was underway this afternoon for a missing eight-year-old boy who set off for his primary school this morning, but never arrived.
    Connor Beck left his home in Lochmaben, in Dumfries and Galloway, at around 9.20am this morning to go to Lochmaben Primary School.
    But he did not arrive in time for classes at the school, which is around half a mile's walk from his home, and was reported missing when he failed to turn up.
    He was last seen in the town's High Street, which would be on Connor's way to school, at around 9.30am.
    Friends and family, as well as police officers, have been out searching for Connor, who was wearing his school uniform when he was last seen.
    His father David Beck told ITV that his son's disappearance was 'completely out of character'.

    I was thinking back to my kids' school days(who are teens and twenties now). We're in a fairly rural area where the kids start middle school at age 9 and the majority would walk to middle school on their own or with friends at 9. But in primary the majority would go with their parents, yet thinking about it it's only a years difference in age.

    Our lessons normally start around 9am, I wonder if it's normal for his school to start late or if he was already running late.
