We have been contacted by a worried mum this morning.
Her 16 year old son left their home in Saltdean just before 7 pm yesterday evening after a disagreement and has not returned.
The police have been informed.
He is 6ft tall with dark hair, he was wearing a black (dark) hoodie and gray tracksuit bottoms with white trainers.
By the wishes of the boys mum an image and name have not been added at this stage but may well be in the future.
We will update any further information as we receive.
Please could you keep a look out especially on The Telscombe Tye, The Downs and beach areas in and around Saltdean and its neighbouring villages and towns.
If you think you have spotted him please contact Sussex Police.
