Police issue appeal over missing teenager

Tyrone McFall has been missing for over a month

Police in Dungannon have said they are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 14-year-old boy, who has been missing for over a month.

Tyrone McFall disappeared from the home of a relative on November 29. To date there have been no confirmed sightings.

The missing teenager is 5ft and of a slim build with short, dark brown hair. Police believe he may be in the Dungannon or Dundalk areas.

The PSNI and Southern Health and Social Care Trust in Dungannon are keen to know that he is safe.

Inspector Stephen Moneypenny from Dungannon PSNI station said he was concerned by the young boy’s disappearance.

\[Clare Palmer\]“Tyrone is a popular and well-liked teenager and it is a concern to us that he has not been positively seen, nor has he been in contact with his family,” he said.\[Clare Palmer\]“We just do not know that he has not come to harm, but nor do we have any evidence that he is safe. We are not aware that he has any means of support and we do not know how he is surviving.

“Our feeling is that Tyrone is with someone and, for his own reasons, does not want to come forward. However, we need to know he is safe.

“Tyrone has friends and family in Dungannon, Banbridge and in Dundalk. Our appeal is to anyone who knows were he is, or to Tyrone himself if he learns of this appeal, to contact us and let us know that he is safe.”Anyone who can provide information about Tyrone’s whereabouts is asked to contact police on 0845 600 8000.
