Police are today continuing the search for missing Warrington teenager Nathan Taylor.
Eighteen year old Priestley College student Nathan was reported missing by his family after failing to return to home from a birthday party in Latchford last Saturday evening.
The police search is focused around Kingsway and Latchford areas of Warrington as police search advisors try to piece together Nathan′s movements on Saturday night with the help of witnesses who have come forward and CCTV images.
Superintendent Martin Cleworth said "We are extremely concerned for Nathan′s welfare, especially given the exceptionally bad weather conditions we experienced last weekend. We have a significant amount of resources committed in the search for Nathan, and understand that this is completely out of character for him to not be in touch with his family or friends. We urge anyone who may have been at the party that evening and may have seen Nathan leaving the premises, or perhaps anyone who he spoke with on that evening or since, and may have knowledge of his current whereabouts, to contact Cheshire Police as a matter of urgency".
Cheshire Police welcome the support of the local community in the search for Nathan Taylor however would not encourage members of the public to engage in any searching activities that could put their own safety in danger. The Police are currently working with other specialists and trained volunteers to search for Nathan within a focused search strategy, and would discourage the public from taking any unnecessary risks by conducting their own searches.
Nathan′s family have spoken about their concern for his whereabouts and his parents Amanda and Chris have made the following appeal; "Nathan we are all devastated about your disappearance. If you are listening to this, or have seen the appeal for you, please contact us. We are all so worried about you and need to know you are safe"
