Parents are appealing for their son to come home after he went missing two days before Christmas.

George Patterson, 12, is understood to have had a row with family and left his father’s home in Blunts Hall Road, Witham, at about 1.30pm yesterday.

He did not have a mobile phone or money.

He was last seen running down the River Walk near Asda, off Highfields Road.

George’s worried parents said he was not in trouble, they just want him to come home.

He was wearing red chinos, a blue fleece and brown shoes and a black and green baseball cap.

George has mousey brown hair and a diamond earring in one ear.

Anyone who sees him should call police on 101.

A twelve year old boy with a pierced ear? Nothing short of child abuse.

Piercings of any nature and any gender should be subject to trhe same laws as tatoos. There is no way that a child can make an informed decision to mutilate their body FOR LIFE.

But glad they found him, nonetheless.
