Police have said there is "mounting concern" for the wellbeing of a North Lanarkshire teenager who has been missing for more than a week.

Robert Thomson, 18, from Bellshill, was last seen in the town's Motherwell Road, near Calder Road, at about 18:00 on Friday 3 June.

He was reported missing by his family on Sunday 5 June.

Robert is described as 6ft tall, of slim build with short dark hair and blue eyes.

He was last seen wearing a black Lacoste tracksuit top with white stripes on the sleeves, dark tracksuit bottoms, black Nike training shoes and possibly a black Nike baseball cap.

'Anxious' family

It is believed that before going missing, Robert spent time in the area of Strathclyde Park in the company of his father.

Insp William Jeffrey said: "Given the length of time that Robert has been missing, there is mounting concern for his wellbeing.

"His family are understandably anxious that he has disappeared without any kind of contact.

"Since Robert was first reported missing on the 5th of June, officers have been working to trace Robert safe and well.

Insp Jeffrey added: "At this time, we are seeking information from the public in order to trace Robert. Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to contact officers at Bellshill police office."
