THE parents of a boy who failed to return home after school two weeks ago are appealing to people in Lae to help them find him.

Ricky John, who attends St Paul’s Primary School in Lae, did not return home after school on Tuesday July 16.

“We have searched everywhere with family members and relatives but we cannot find him,”  father John Koral said yesterday. 

John, 15, from Alken village, Tambul, Western Highlands, was last seen with two of his schoolmates at the Highlands-Madang bus stop at Eriku between 2pm and 3pm.

“He never went missing before and we are worried,” Koral said.

John is about 165cm tall, slim and has a brown complexion. 

Anyone with information on the boy can contact his father on 71609684 or report it to their nearest police station.

The family says there is a reward for anyone who safely returns him or provides information about his whereabouts.
