The mother of a teenager missing from Trimley St Martin has appealed for the public to help find him.
Jack Downing, who has a development delay, was last seen in Faulkners Way at about 9am on Saturday morning.
His mum, Amanda Lawrenson, said he "shot ahead" while the pair were out on a walk, and seems to have "taken a detour on his own".
Ms Lawrenson urged anybody who spots Jack to get in touch with police immediately.
"If people can keep an eye open when they are out and about I would really appreciate it," she said.
"The best thing to do is to call police and they will come and pick him up."
