A renewed appeal for information about Callum Chapman, 17, from the Grimsby area, who was last seen in the early hours of yesterday morning, has been made.

Police say they are concerned for his safety and have appealed for him, or anyone who has seen him, to contact them.

Sergeant Diane Johnson said: “Callum has been staying in Maryport but he is originally from Grimsby, and may be trying to return.

"However, as a precaution we have been working with the Coastguard to search the shore line at Maryport today for any signs that he may have been in the area.

“We appeal for anyone who believes they may have seen Callum at all yesterday or today to get in touch with us.”

Speaking yesterday, Sgt Peter Garforth, based at Workington's police station, told the News & Star that Callum doesn't know many people in Maryport and doesn't know the area.

Callum was staying with relatives on Ennerdale Road, Maryport, when he decided to go for a walk at 3.50am. He has not been seen since.

He is described as 5ft 6in tall. He was wearing a dark blue Nike sweatshirt, grey Adidas jogging bottoms and grey Nike trainers with a green swoosh.

Anyone who knows where he is should call police on 101.
