11-year-old boy missing from home
9:23am 7th March 2012
Police and family are concerned for the welfare of an 11-year-old Elloughton boy who is currently missing from his home address.
Benjamin Nicholls, known as Ben to his family and friends from Elloughton in Brough was last seen last night before going to bed shortly after 2100hrs (Tuesday 06 March 2012).
Ben suffers from health problems, which deems him not socially adept and will want to be on his own.
Ben is 11 years old, 4 ft 8ins tall, slim build and has short brown hair. Ben usually wears glasses, but these remain at home.
It is thought Ben will be wearing his black Superdry coat, black boots and likely to be wearing jeans. He has no access to a mobile phone or money and looks younger than 11 years old.
Ben has never been reported missing before and this is extremely out of character for him.
Police searches are being carried out in Brough, Elloughton and the Dales area, along with checks in fields, at hospitals, on public transport and outbuildings.
It is thought Ben, who enjoys walks, may be somewhere away from the public and possibly in a field or wooded area.
Police are searching all likely places, are using the police helicopter and also appealing to any dog walkers to keep a look out, should they come across Ben, please call Humberside Police on 999 quoting log number 60 of 07/03/2012.
A picture of Ben is below, however the image is of Ben wearing glasses and we do not believe he is wearing these at present.
Police are calling for the assistance of the public, if anyone believes they may have seen Ben Nicholls late last night or today or may have any information which will lead to his safe return.
