We need your help in finding finding 15-year-old Simba Pemhenai.


He has been missing from Kilmaurs in East Ayrshire, since yesterday, Wednesday, 15 May 2019.


Simba, who moved to the area just over a week ago, was last seen in the village around 2.30 pm yesterday afternoon.


He is described as black, 5ft 3 in height of slim/medium build with short black hair and brown eyes.

"We believe he may have travelled back to either Merseyside or possibly London but that has still to be confirmed. We have been liaising with colleagues in these force areas as well as with British Transport Police and bus operators in an effort to trace him, however, to date there have been no further sightings of him.


"I would be grateful if people keep a look out for him particularly around transport hubs and report any possible sightings of him to police.


"Police Scotland can be contacted by calling 101. Please quote reference number 2270 of the 15 May 2019 when calling. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted in confidence on 0800 555 111."
