POLICE searching for a missing 17-year-old from Frensham have released a new image showing the clothes they believe he may now be wearing.

Oliver (surname not supplied) was last seen leaving his home in Frensham to cycle round Alice Holt Forest at 11.45am on Thursday, March 19, and hasn’t made contact with his family since.

Surrey Police has now renewed its appeal to find the missing teen, following a comprehensive search of Alice Holt assisted by Surrey Search and Rescue.

Officers believe Oliver may now be wearing the clothes shown in the images to the right, which include a blue hoodie, maroon t-shirt, blue patterned shorts over black leggings and black trainers.

Officers have also asked the public to keep an eye out for Oliver’s phone which may be in the Rowledge area of Alice Holt Forest. It is a grey or black Vodafone Smart N9 mobile (also pictured).

It is thought Oliver may be off the beaten path in any woodland area nearby, so walkers are asked to be aware of this and to look out for any "den-like structures".

A potential sighting of Oliver was reported on Wednesday, March 18, where a young man was seen cycling his white mountain bike up High Thicket Road, in the direction of Frensham/Dockenfield.

This bike had also been tied to a farm gate backing onto Goose Farm on High Thicket Road just by the A325.

Officers would like to identify this man as soon as possible, and urge anyone fitting this description, or with any other information, to "come forward straightaway" and call the police on 101 quoting reference PR/45200030967.

PC Keely Copland from the Missing Persons Unit added: “Oliver is now without his white mountain bike, which we found in the Alice Holt Forest.

"With this in mind, we are encouraging the wider public to keep an eye out for Oliver and his phone in any woodland area nearby.

"I also urge the public to please share our appeals on social media so that we can reach as many people as we can.

"I appreciate the restrictive circumstances we are currently under, but any help in finding Oliver is hugely appreciated.”
