Family of a 14-year-old boy last seen in Southport yesterday are appealing for information on his whereabouts.

Bobby Johnson, 5 ft 4, was last seen wearing a blue tracksuit, in Southport at 11am yesterday.

His Mother Dannii Morris confirmed on Facebook that Bobby had made contact at around 2am on Wednesday morning by phone, but his location was still unknown.

This is the second time in recent weeks that appeals have been made for information on Bobby’s whereabouts.

Morris posted: “Come on Bobby Johnson, enough is enough. Come home there is no need for this at all. Yes I’m not happy who you have been with and where you have been but you just need to come back home. We are all worried sick, we love you so much, just want you safe. If you read this please ring me again

“Bobby is extremely vulnerable and has well-known associates in Liverpool , Bootle and Netherton”
