Boy found unconscious seriously ill in hospital as police try to trace family

Police are appealing for help to trace the family of a teenager who was found unconscious.

Greater Manchester Police officers found the boy, thought to be aged between 12 and 15, just after 10.30pm on Thursday.

He was taken to hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

Police, who discovered the boy after being called to a report of concern for welfare on Wythenshawe Road in Northern Moor, said the incident is not being treated as suspicious.

Detective Inspector Mark Astbury said: "This young boy is in a serious condition and we want to reunite him with his family.

"I would like to appeal to parents who have not seen their son or anyone who has concerns about a friend who matches this description to contact us.

"I would also urge anyone who was in the area at the time and has any information that can help identify this young lad to come forward."

The boy is described as white, aged between 12 and 15, slim, with blond hair, green/blue eyes and skin grafts on his upper legs.

He was wearing a blue Penguin brand jacket, grey sweatshirt, black tracksuit bottoms, black socks and blue trainers.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 2385 of 24/11/16, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
