Police have said they are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of a 12-year-old boy who is missing from his home in the Forest of Dean.

Ibraheem Shah, from Soudley, near Cinderford, was last seen on Wednesday.

A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said Ibraheem had links with London and may have been attempting to travel there.

"Although he is very streetwise detectives are keen to speak to him. Anyone who knows of his whereabouts should contact police," he added.

Ibraheem is described as Asian, around 5ft (1.52m) tall, of slight build, with short curly black hair and a London accent.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a black tracksuit with a red stripe on the top part and black trainers.
