THE FAMILY of a talented young footballer are calling on the public's help to find missing 16-year-old Darnell Ramsey, who was last seen in East Ham, east London, on Monday afternoon (Jan 26).
According to concerned friends and family, Darnell, who played for Pro Power Dragons under 16s team, was spotted in fast food restaurant McDonald's shortly after he finished school.
Craig Heskey, his coach at the team, based in Newham, east London, wrote on Twitter: "Get my talented 16 yr old footballer Darnell Ramsey back home to his mum please. Missing since Monday #UnhappyCoach"
"Those boys in my team are more than just 'players' to me and my students at sixth form are more than just 'students'"
He added: "His mum is worried sick....A very talented footballer in my junior team. Been missing since Monday. Need info ASAP."
A spokesman from The Met told The Voice that officers are in constant contact with his family "and enquires continue to find him".
