Missing teenager Graham Wells is said to have links to Derbyshire.

Inspector Greg Tansill, of Bournemouth police, said: “It has been some time since Graham was last seen or has been heard from.

"Therefore, we are becoming very concerned for his welfare.

“We are hoping that somebody may have seen him since he was last seen or has information about his current whereabouts.

“Also, I would like to appeal to Graham directly.

"If you see this appeal, please contact us.

"You are not in any trouble – we just want to ensure you are safe and well.”
