Sussex Police have issued a public appeal for help to find a missing 12-year-old boy from Hove.
The force said: “Police in Brighton and Hove are searching for missing 12-year-old George Maynard.
“George, who is white, of slim build, with wavy blond hair, was last seen wearing a black hooded top with a gold logo on the left breast and writing down the left arm, black tracksuit trousers and blue/white trainers, when he left his address in Hove on Saturday evening (3 August).
“He is still thought to be somewhere in the city.
“Although there are currently no suspicious circumstances around George’s disappearance, there is naturally concern for him, due to his age and consequent vulnerability.
“Anyone who sees George, or who has any information on his whereabouts, is asked to contact the police by calling 999 or 101, quoting serial 1646 of 03/08.”
