CHESHIRE Police are appealing to the public for help in the search for an Ellesmere Port teenager who disappeared yesterday.
Dean Bennett, 16, from the Princes Road area of Ellesmere Port, was reported missing by his concerned family yesterday evening (Sunday, September 11).
Dean was last seen at around 4.10pm while visiting his grandmother near Ellesmere Port’s boat museum.
It is believed Dean would have then made a 10-minute journey on foot to another family member along Merseyton Road toward Grace Road.
Inspector Ian Thorp of Cheshire Police said: “Dean’s disappearance is completely out of character and he is described by his family as a shy, intelligent and family orientated young man.
“Following excellent exam results, he was looking forward to starting college today.
“Despite extensive searches, Dean has not yet been traced and his family and police are gravely concerned for his welfare.”
Anyone who has seen Dean should contact Cheshire Police on 0845 458 0000 quoting incident 767 September 11.
