James is described as 6 ft tall, slim, with short dark brown hair. He was last seen wearing black jeans, a black Lacoste jumper with white arm patches, a black tee shirt and white Adidas trainers.

Chief Inspector Sally Riley, of West Police, said: “James has now been missing for a number of hours and we are growing increasingly concerned about him, especially as it is out of character for James to go missing and the weather has been particularly cold.

"I would ask anyone who sees James or has any information about where he might be to get in touch.

"I would also ask James to get in touch if he sees this appeal to let us know he is okay.

“It may be that James has tried to walk home and become disorientated and sought shelter somewhere because of the cold weather so I would ask people in the area to check any sheds or outhouses and CCTV.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting log number 1453 of January 1st.

For immediate sightings please call 999.
