Bexley police are increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 14-year-old boy who has been missing since the end of October.

Hoang Ngoc Vo, of Welling, was last seen by his foster carers at midday on October 26, when he left home to travel to the library.

The teenager arrived in the UK from Vietnam as an unaccompanied child on July 11, 2017. He is about 5ft in height and of a slim build, with short black hair and hazel eyes.

Hoang is believed to be aged 14, but may appear older. He arrived in the UK without documentation that definitively established his date of birth.

He has previously been reported missing twice while living in London, and on both occasions was found at an address in Peckham. But this time, police inquiries have failed to locate him at this address.

At the time he went missing, Hoang was wearing a light grey tracksuit top and bottoms, with multicoloured trainers.

Anyone with information is urged to call 101 or the charity Missing People on 116000.
