Bedfordshire Police say they’re increasingly concerned for the welfare of two Bedford Borough teenage boys who have gone missing together.

Joshua, 14, was reported missing yesterday on Wednesday (4 August) from his home in Cranfield.

He is approximately 5’7’’ and slim and was last seen wearing a black hooded top with red and blue details and black tracksuit bottoms.

Leo, 17, was last seen on Tuesday afternoon (3 August) at his home in Wixams.

He is also around 5’7’’ and slim and was last seen wearing black trainers, a white t-shirt, a black Champion bum bag, black Nike jogging bottoms, and a black Nike jumper with logo on the arm and chest.

The boys have links to London and Bedford.

If you have seen either Leo or Joshua, or have any ideas as to their whereabouts, please contact Bedfordshire Police on 101 or at their online reporting centre.

Quote reference MPC/1635/21 for Joshua and MPC/1652/21 for Leo.
