A TEENAGE boy who has gone missing from home in Cumbria may now be in North Yorkshire, police say.

Aaron O’Keefe, 14, from Milnthorpe, was last seen in KFC in Kendal town centre at around 2pm on Wednesday.

He is white, around 6ft tall, with short light brown hair and a pale complexion. He was last seen wearing a white polo shirt, grey adidas tracksuit bottoms, a black jacket and a white baseball cap.

Police say they are concerned for his welfare due to his age and the fact he has little money with him. They say he has contacts in North Yorkshire, so could now be in the county.

Police ask Aaron, or anyone who thinks they have seen him, to phone Kendal police on 101.
