An 11-year-old boy who disappeared after leaving his London home is causing police 'increasing concern'.

Abraham Ojo was last seen leaving his home in Tottenham in north London on Thursday morning.

Police in Haringey are growing increasingly worried for his welfare, particularly because Abraham is young and is known to travel extensively on London's bus network.

The boy, who is black and was dressed in a "Puffa" coat when last seen, left his home address at about 8.40 am on Thursday.

He was wearing black school trousers and a red jumper, and was also carrying a red bag.

A police spokesperson told The Independent: "We can't be sure he was headed to school, all we know is that was the last time Abraham was seen."

The police force in Haringey also tweeted Abraham's picture, saying he was a "high-risk missing person."

The official appeal reads: "Given his age, officers are increasingly concerned for his welfare and would urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to call police."
