New images of missing Midlands teenager released as police search continues
West Midlands Police have expressed they are increasingly worried about a missing teenager, who has not been seen for two weeks.
Raman, a 16-year-old from West Bromwich, was reported missing on Thursday 3 March and police have released new images of him in the hope of jogging someone’s memory and helping to locate him.
The teenager was captured on CCTV as he left PureGym in West Bromwich at about 11.50am on Wednesday 2 March, the day before he went missing.
The CCTV footage then show him a few minutes later walking along Shaftesbury Street, at just after midday. He is then seen walking past people in the street.
The following morning Raman left home at between 9am and 10am, but despite extensive searches and investigations he has not been heard from since.
Detective Inspector Alison Bridgewater, from the force’s Locate team, said: “We’re getting increasingly concerned around Raman who has not been seen since March 3.
“We and his family really want to know that he’s okay, but despite our best efforts we are no closer to locating him safe and well.
“We would urge anyone who saw Raman either at the gym or walking in Shaftesbury Street to contact us as they may have vital information about him, or they may even have spoken with him.
“We’d also appeal for any dash cam, ring doorbell or CCTV that may have captured Raman on that journey or on the following day near his home in the area around Oak Park and Sandwell Hospital.”
Raman is described as 5ft 7ins tall, with short black hair and he was last seen wearing a long black Nike coat, a light green cap and black shoes.
West Midlands Police urge anyone who ha seen him to immediately call 999 quoting MPSW/2229/22, or message them via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk, or call 101.
