    Arthur’s bike was recovered in Axminster today (Wednesday) and it is now believed that he left home intentionally.
    Police have been informed that he is missing and Arthur’s family have launched a campaign on social media asking for the public’s help in finding him.

    A police spokesperson said: “This is completely out of character for Arthur and, due to his age, police consider Arthur vulnerable.”

    @Webnut - thank you for adding this to the UK Index thread

    Hopefully this young man just didn't wanna go back to school and is hiding out somewhere. Time will tell.

    Arthur's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php...45&pnref=story

    There is a female family member who has posted that they have received a letter and now know he has run away. Also that they know Arthur has changed into casual clothes.

    Yes saw that earlier on a news website, I hope he's only run away and not anything worse than that. They need to find him.

    Looks quite grown up for 15 - could pass for older I think. Also just read that clippers are missing from his room, so he may have changed his appearance somewhat - shaved hair perhaps ?

    Small update re the contents of the letter that Arthur left for his parents.


    Detective Constable Mark Boon said: "Arthur had left a detailed note expressing his wishes to travel and his reasons, and at this time we are asking anyone who has seen him to get in touch.

    Do we know if he has his passport? Or is he just travelling the UK?

    Not seen anything re passport or any comment re airports etc being alerted. He does sound as though his departure was pre planned so would have thought he would take passport - unless he just doesn't have one.

    How on earth can a 15 year old even afford to travel? I work full time and can barely afford a holiday.

    Who knows, he could have withdrawn his savings or could be hitching lifts and living rough.

    I can't help thinking he'll turn up in a commune in Wales or something.

    Can a 15 year old book flights and travel abroad alone? We'd know if he was abroad already and he won't get away with going anywhere now the police are involved. So he has to be somewhere on this island. Maybe there's an online friend he has gone to visit. Anyway, the good news is he has gone voluntarily, so I'm pretty sure he'll be found or make contact soon.

    Airlines policy differ with age but most of them would require the minor to be looked after by the crew or have an indemnity form filled out by the parent/guardian beforehand. I think it would be quite hard to get on a flight without any hassle if you're under 16. Police would have checked flight records and there is no way he could get on one now.

    We don't know 100% if he has gone voluntarily though. He may have been coerced into writing that letter or someone else wrote it. Wonder where it was posted from exactly.

    The thing is he is vulnerable, so even though he may have gone voluntarily, he needs to be found. Maybe the family have had some news as nothing new on his sister's FB page for 3 days.
