POLICE in Stroud are appealing for information to help trace a boy who ran away from school today.

Tony Lemm, 13 and originally from the Berkeley area, was last seen in the Ryeleaze Road area at 2pm after being spoken to about a disciplinary matter at school.

Tony has been missing and returned safely before but officers are concerned because of his age and vulnerability.

Tony is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, of stocky build, with brown, short hair.

He was wearing black trousers, white shirt and black sweater and possibly carrying a blue and black rucksack.

The only photo of Tony currently available, which is of very poor quality, has been released by police to help the appeal.

Tony has links to Wotton-under-Edge and Nailsworth so people in those areas in particular are asked to be on the lookout.

If you have any information please call 101 or 999 quoting incident 309 of 24 June.
