Mansfield boy Ciaran Sweeny is still missing nearly a week after he disappeared.
The 14-year-old went missing on 15th September at around 6pm from The Heathers, at the Oak Tree estate in Mansfield.
His mother and Nottinghamshire Police have both released urgent appeals for Ciaran to come home.
Ciaran is white and about 5ft 2ins tall. He has brown short hair and is of a slim build.
He was last seen wearing a black coat with a hooded top, tracksuit bottoms and trainers.
People have been posting messages on social media networks calling for Ciaran to come home using the hashtag #findciaransweeney.
Mum, Rheane O’Neill, said: “Please come home. We are waiting for you and we want you to be safe. Everyone misses you.
“He did not even have any shoes on at the time. There was a possible sighting of him but they weren’t sure.”
