Concern is growing for an 11-year-old boy who went missing from Maidenhead.

Junior Scott had gone to stay at a property in Stud Green, Holyport, on Monday but was reported missing on Tuesday evening.

Police are appealing for help to find Junior, who had previously been living in Southall, west London.

Junior is black, about 5ft tall, of large build, with short hair and a mark on his face similar to a raised rash. He also has a scar on his left hand.

The 11-year-old was last seen wearing jeans, a light blue polo shirt, black canvas shoes and a black hooded top with writing on it.

Thames Valley Police said the boy had last been seen at about 1710 GMT on Tuesday and was reported missing shortly before 1800 GMT.

Officers said they were concerned about Junior because of the cold weather and appealed to him to get in touch.

Ch Insp David Gilbert, deputy local police commander for Windsor and Maidenhead, said: "Although Junior has been described as being fairly streetwise, we are concerned for his safety due to his age and the fact that he may not know the area where he has gone missing from.

"I'm also appealing to Junior directly for him to come forward and let us know he is safe and well."
