Police ‘concerned’ for boy, 15, missing for nearly two weeks

Police are “growing increasingly concerned” for the welfare of a 15-year-old boy who went missing nearly two weeks ago.

Ruben Campos-Vera left his home in Southwark, on November 7, and has not been seen by his family since.

He was last seen on CCTV getting on a number 20 bus at Walthamstow Central station, in Hoe Street, Walthamstow, at around 5.45pm last Tuesday.

He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket, with dark trousers, dark trainers and white soles. He was also carrying a patterned rucksack.

Met Detective Inspector Adrian Smith, said: “We are carrying out extensive enquiries to try and find Ruben. 

“Although his home is in Southwark, we know he has been in east London and are particularly asking anyone in Walthamstow and Slough, areas to look carefully at the photos and think about whether they have seen him in recent days.”

A spokesman from the Met said: “Anyone with information is asked to call 101. Report immediate sightings by calling 999. 

“You can also contact the Missing People charity by calling 116 000. This service is free and confidential.”
