The mother of a missing Bangor man has made a heartfelt plea for information about her son’s welfare.

Janice Fenton made her emotional appeal yesterday, Tuesday June 20, directing it to her 22-year-old son James Fenton, who has been missing since July 2.

Mrs Fenton said: “James, if you read this please just let us know that you are okay. We are worried about you son and just want to know that you are okay.”

North Down MLA Peter Weir has spoken with the Fenton family.

He said: “The main concern the family have is to ensure that James is safe and well.

“If he is not ready to make his whereabouts known I would at least urge him to make contact with his family just to let them know that he is all right. This is out of character for James as he has no previous history of disappearing. His family are distressed at not having heard from James since he went missing.

“As he is a local man who has grown up in Bangor it is thought that he may be staying with a friend or someone he knows in the Bangor area and I would urge anyone with any information to contact the police or speak to his family.”

According to the PSNI James went missing from the Ulster Hospital, Dundonald, just before midnight on July 2. He is of slim build and about 5ft 11 with short dark hair.

When last seen he was wearing blue tracksuit bottoms with a white stripe, white hoody over a white crew neck T-shirt and brown slippers.

James is not believed to have any access to money at present and police would appeal for anyone who knows of his whereabouts to contact them on 0845 600 8000.
