Merseyside Police can confirm that Nickile has been found safe and well this afternoon. We would like to thank the media and members of the public for their interest and assistance in publicising this missing person appeal.
Merseyside Police is becoming increasingly concerned for the whereabouts of a 15-year-old boy who has been missing from his home since yesterday (Monday, July 9, 2012).
Nickile Marquis was last seen at the back of his home on Grovelands in Edge Hill by a neighbour at around 8.15am.
He is described as black, of slim build, 5ft 5in tall with dark shaved hair.
It is believed he could either be wearing a black body warmer with Adidas written in red, blue jeans and denim coloured Converse boots or his school uniform – a black blazer with a yellow and green tree on the pocket, black trousers and a white shirt.
He is known to frequent Liverpool One or the Albert Dock areas.
Nickile did not arrive at school and it is out of character for him to go missing.
Police and his family are very concerned for his welfare and ask Nickile, or anyone who may have seen a boy matching his description to get in touch with the police.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 4061, or the Missing Persons Bureau on 116 000.
