Dylan Guadagno, 14 and from Bournemouth, was last been seen in the Charminster Road area of the town at around 6pm on Sunday, January 28.

He is described by Dorset Police as five feet five inches tall and of slim build with medium-length brown hair. He was last seen wearing a black tracksuit and black trainers.

Hampshire police have since said Dylan has links to Southampton and could be in the city.

“From our enquiries we believe he may have spent time in the Turlin Moor and Hamworthy area and I am appealing to anyone with information regarding his whereabouts to please make contact with us.

“I would also like to appeal directly to Dylan to please make contact with us or your family and let us know where you are. You are not in any trouble, we just want to check that you are OK.”
