A TEENAGER has not been seen since he left his home at the end of last month.
Craig Shaw, 15, from Blackfell in Washington, left his home in Westernmoor at 1pm on Saturday, August 30.
He was reported missing later that night.
Police believe he may be in or around Blyth in Northumberland as he has family and friends in that area.
While he has been in contact with family since he was last seen and it is not unusual for him to be away from home, officers need to trace Craig to ensure he is safe and well.
Craig is described as about 5ft 5ins tall of slim build, with pale skin and short blond hair.
Officers are appealing for Craig, or anyone who sees him or knows of his whereabouts, to get in touch with police on 101 ext 69191, quoting reference 1351 30/08/14.
