His family is increasingly concerned for his safety due to his young age.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said: ‘North Yorkshire Police are urgently appealing for information and possible sightings to assist in locating a missing teenage boy from Selby. Lewis has had no contact with his family since 8:35pm Saturday (April 8, 2023), when he was due to return home from the city centre.
