Uncle reaches out to missing teenager
The uncle of missing 18-year-old Michael Robinson has described his disappearance as “completely out of character.”
Stephen Burrows says the family are becoming increasingly concerned for his nephew’s safety, who was last seen in the Crumlin Road area of North Belfast at 3pm on August 29.
Michael is described as being 5ft 10ins tall, and of slim build with short, spiky blonde hair with a distinctive design shaved into it. He may also have a cast on his arm.
When last seen, Michael was wearing black tracksuit bottoms with a single yellow stripe down the side, a light brown jacket, a grey hooded top, and green and black trainers.
Stephen, who is the last confirmed person to have seen Michael, describes his nephew as a happy person.
“Michael’s disappearance is completely out of character for him. I do not believe it was planned. The family are out of their minds with worry, especially his mum. We lost Michael’s brother to suicide last year.
“I have been talking to a lot of media, just trying to get his picture out there, but so far there’s been nothing.
In an appeal to his nephew, Stephen says:”Michael, if you are reading this, just please get in touch. Let somebody know that you’re all right.
Police have appealed to Michael, or anyone who knows anything about his whereabouts to contact York Road Police Station on 0845 600 8000.
