Jordan Saunders was found safe and well - only to go missing again sparking a police appeal

Daily Echo: Teen disappears for a second time Teen disappears for a second time

A HAMPSHIRE teenager found safe and well after going missing for nine days has disappeared again, police have revealed.

Jordan Saunders first went missing having last been seen in Eastleigh on December 19.

The 15-year-old, who lives in Gosport, had not returned home sparking a police appeal.

After a search, officers reported yesterday that the youngster had been found safe and well in Southampton on Friday night.

But he has subsequently left his home in Gosport and police are once again appealing for information as to his whereabouts.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said: "We can confirm Jordan Saunders was found safe in Southampton on Friday, December 27, 2013 and returned to an address in Gosport where he has been living.

"Police are aware the 15-year-old subsequently left this address in Gosport. His current whereabouts are not known.

"Officers are following several lines of enquiry this evening (Saturday) and remain in contact with Jordan's family.

"Jordan is described as white, 5 ft 6 ins tall, of a slim build - with floppy brown hair and freckles.

"We would appeal directly to Jordan to make contact with family or the police. He is not suspected of any crimes or anti-social behaviour.

“Jordan or anyone with information about his whereabouts can contact police by phoning 101. Mini-com users can phone 18001 101."

The incompetent social services need to get a grip of children like this rather than shrugging their shoulders and relying on Police to waste their valuable time and limited stretched resources chasing around children on their behalf.

Ringing 101 costs money unlike the NHS 111 that is free even from mobiles. I accept that the police are keen to keep reported crime low but surely on this type of very necessary response they could give the 08450454545 number that many of us can use at no cost on our contracts.

Sadly a reflection of the world we live in. Inform Al did not actually say in his post that HE would not ring 101, but as he pointed out, a lot of people won't.

Knowledgeable comment-or not?
Not very constructive in this case-slag someone else off seems a good route.
Sincerely hope this youth's issues are sorted out, this will require help and support from all quarters, and our good wishes will not go amiss Mr NF Resident.

Tried to report details of a crime on the 101 number a couple of months ago, but after being put on hold and redirected for over 15 minutes i decided to give up.
Unfortunately Is it any wonder people don,t bother assisting the police by reporting crime any longer,especially as it is now at your own cost.

There's clearly something serious going on here otherwise why would he run away twice? Yeah some people may say he's doing it for attention but surely he would have got the attention he was looking for the first time he did this, maybe there's something more serious going on at home, abuse?witnessing abuse? etc. I think social services should be stepping in and talking to him maybe that's the recognition he's looking for because he may be too afraid to speak out so this is his way of making it more noticeable to outsiders.

There doesn't have to be anything sinister going on he's a TEENAGER we've all done the typical "im gonna run away because im a rebel" thing. Teens are balls of hormones where every little thing turns into a "oh my god my whole world is ending" super drama when someone simply unfriends them on Facebook. Sometimes teens just lash out because they're teens ya know. I've known many teens who throw tantrums and go off in huffs and come back, go thru more overly dramatic periods and do it again. All im saying is this case could easily be just the kid testing the parental boundaries by walking away, there isn't evidence anything bad is going on the ONLY evidence is the kid went away again and the odds are he got bolloxed for the fuss, didn't like it and went off again.

We've all had battles with our parents over minor stuff and made out it was far worse and stormed out

For all we know he could be running away because he's being abused; Police need to intervene and in most missing child cases, a crime has been committed. It may not be revealed immediately but if in a years time he was to report something and we look back and the police did nothing, people would be saying ' why didn't the police do anything, it was clear something was wrong'

Sorry mary you cant watch over a 15 yr old 24/7 apart from chaining him up which would be against the law, though i feel sure his parents would love to do that to keep him safe, there is not a lot anyone can do, he is at that horrible hormonal age,mixed up kid . its in his make up as to what he does you cant always blame parents. But it is sad it happens. A lot of kids that are spoiled act like him, MAYBE that is the problem. who knows ? all i can say i hope he stays safe. and dont get involved with the nasties of this world.

personnaly, i think all who say hes a 'brat' or doing it for 'attention' should keep quiet unless the truth is reveiled or they know the boy or his family, an therefore know what is truely going on. for all we know this lad is having an awful time at home (first impressions can be very deciving). maybe hes got medical issues that havent been diagnosed therefore hes misunderstood. Or maybe he is jus being a typicall teenager. But at the end of the day, something is telling him to run and therefore that what he his doing. Think about how you would feel reading this about yourselves before you continue to comment.

Maybe people who have no idea of this kids past or current situation should refrain from commenting on such post. If people want to help maybe they should volunteer for a relevant charity, otherwise simply move on to another news article and refrain from ranting.

For those who are generally concerned he was seen safe and well in Eastleigh today and his location reported to the police.

Glad to her he has been found again and the police or his family get to the bottom of why he runs away.

I actually agree with you on this one . i know kids who have a great home life but think its more fun to leave home. they want to be grown up but they are not they still have young heads. some parents allow their kids to stay out to give them some peace and never call the police because the freedom the kids have they do go back home ,other kids dont understand why their parents cant be the same so they run off! most people if honest can relate to what ive said
