Search launched for Scots teen who went missing an hour before the bells on Hogmanay

Police have launched a search for a 14-year-old boy who disappeared an hour before the bells on Hogmanay.

Lewis Crosbie was last seen leaving an address on Charles Street in Penicuik, Midlothian, at around 11.10pm on Saturday December 31. He has not been seen since, prompting his family to issue an appeal on social media that was later boosted by Police Scotland.

Lewis is described as 5ft 6ins in height, white and male, with short brown hair and green/blue eyes. He is of slim build and police say there are "growing concerns" for the youngster's welfare.

A social media post from a relative read: "Lewis Crosbie has gone missing from home in Penicuik on 31/12/22. There are concerns for his well-being and safety. If you see Lewis please message us on here or call 101/999 with details.

"He is wearing a dark green (may look black) Nike tracksuit with a black coat and black Nike trainers." They later added: "Lewis is still missing please continue to share and reach out if you know or see anything."

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "We are appealing for the public’s help as part of our efforts to trace a man reported missing in Penicuik, Midlothian. Lewis was last seen leaving an address in Charles Street, Penicuik around 1110 pm on Saturday 31st December 2022.

"The 14 year old who lives in Penicuik has not been seen since and there are growing concerns for his welfare. Lewis is described as a 5ft 6 inches, white, male with short brown coloured hair, slim build and green/blue eyes.

"Anyone who may have seen Lewis, or who has any information on his whereabouts, is urged to contact Police Scotland via 101 quoting incident number 3697 of 31st December 2022."
