Merseyside Police is making a fresh appeal for the public’s help in tracing a schoolboy who went missing from home two and a half weeks ago.

William Perry, 13, was last seen at an address in St Helens on the evening of Saturday, 23 May – the weekend of the Three Queens event in Liverpool.

He has recently been in touch with his mum on the phone and has been regularly seen in Breckside Park and on Breckfield Road in Anfield, north Liverpool as well as other areas.

However his family and the police remain keen for him to return home safe and well and due to his young age, regard him as vulnerable.

William is described as white, 5ft 2ins tall with short brown hair and brown eyes.

He left home wearing a black coat, trousers and trainers however is likely to have changed his clothes and was recently seen wearing a camouflage cap.

He is known to ride a black mountain bike and has links to the Breckside Park and Richmond Park areas of Anfield as well as Speke, Rimrose Valley Park in Bootle, and Liverpool city centre.

Anyone who has seen William since May 23rd or knows where he is now is urged to call Merseyside Police on 101. Alternatively leave information with the Missing People charity on 116 000.
