Police appeal for help to find Vietnamese boy, 16, missing from Budleigh Salterton

Police say they are ‘growing increasingly concerned for the welfare’ of a 16-year-old Vietnamese boy who has been reported missing from  his home in Budleigh Salterton.

Nam Vu Van was last seen walking along Station Road in the town at around 2.30pm on Wednesday, April 29.

Police say they have concerns for the teenager due to his age and because he is new to the area.

Nam is described as Asian, of slim build, 5ft 9in in height, with short, black, straight hair. He was last seen wearing a light-coloured padded jacket, light tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said: “Anyone who may have been in the area of Station Road or the High Street in Budleigh Salterton between 2pm and 3pm on the day he was reported missing, or anyone who has seen Nam since he was reported missing, is asked to get in touch.

“In addition, police would like to hear from motorists who may have dashcam footage of the area the day he went missing.”

Anyone with any information that could assist officers’ search for Nam is asked to contact police on 101, or by emailing 101@dc.police.uk, quoting log number 664 of 29/04/2020.
