Concern is mounting for a 16-year-old boy who has been missing for a week.

Karim Neched has not been seen since he left his home in Enfield at 8am on Tuesday March 4.

Karim is described as a dark-skinned European. He is six feet tall, of slim build with very short brown hair.

It is not known what clothing he was wearing at the time he went missing.

His family and police are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare and have said it is “out of character” for him not to be in contact with his family.

It is believed he may be in Enfield, Camden, Essex or Hertfordshire.

Anyone with information on Karim's whereabouts is asked to call police on 101.
