POLICE are appealing for information to trace a 16-year-old from London who was reported missing and may be in Ipswich.


Spencer Musika, from Thamesmead in London, was last seen at his father’s home address in Thamesmead on Saturday, November 17.

Police believe that Spencer divides his time between the borough of Greenwich and Bexley, where he has several connections.

The teenager also has links with Ipswich, as well as Margate in Kent, Essex, Hertfordshire, Plumstead, Woolwich, Maidstone and Northampton.

He is described as black, of slim build and about 5ft 10in.

Spencer has been reported missing in the past.

Officer in the case Pc Rhianne Trill said: “Spencer is a vulnerable teenager and his family is very concerned about his welfare. Anyone with information should contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should call the Greenwich Missing person Unit on 0208 284 7713 or police on 101 quoting reference 12MIS037112.
