A SEARCH is on today for a 14-year-old Ipswich boy who has gone missing from home.

David Beresford had been staying with his father in Inverness Road but left the house at around 5.30pm on Sunday to play in a nearby park.

But he did not return home and, other than a phone call to his father from a Norwich telephone kiosk, he has not been heard of since.

Suffolk police are becoming increasingly concerned about the teenager who has learning difficulties.
