A Lancashire Police spokeswoman said: “We are worried about Joshua’s welfare and would appeal to anybody who knows where he is, or thinks they may have seen him, to contact us as soon as possible. Similarly we would urge Joshua himself, if he sees this appeal, to get in touch let us know he is safe.”
Anybody with information about his whereabouts should contact police on 101, quoting log number 910 of April 25th.
