Breaking: Urgent appeal launched after 11-year-old schoolboy goes missing days before Christmas.

BREAKING NEWS – An urgent appeal has been launched by Met Police asking the public for help after an 11-year-old schoolboy goes missing just days before Christmas.

Officers began searching for the young boy after the alarm was raised when it was discovered that he had vanished from his house.

Corde, described as a black boy, of small build and 4ft 6ins tall according to the police statement, was last seen at about 1 am on Wednesday, December 22 at his home in Grove Park, Camberwell, SE5.

Police believe that the boy wandered off from his home address and could be wearing a dark blue hoody with ‘GAP’ in yellow letters and ‘Nike’ trainers.

According to Lambeth Police, Corde likes trains and maybe on or around the transport network.

His family and offices are increasingly concerned for his welfare.


In an announcement made just before 1 pm (UK time), Lambeth Police said: “Corde has been found safe and well.

“Our thanks to the public and to media for supporting this appeal.”
