Officers from Leicestershire Police’s Missing Persons Operations Team are urgently trying to find a 12 year old boy who was last seen on Harby Lane in Harby last night (Friday 17 August).

Dre (pronounced dray) Wilson was seen at 9.05pm running along Harby Lane in the Vale of Belvoir. He is very distinctive in his appearance and officers are hoping that will help to find him quickly.

He is an Afro Caribbean boy. The top of his hair is bleached blond and the sides are very short with two lines shaved into each side of his head. When he was last seen he was wearing a green khaki coat, black skinny jeans with rips on both knees, a white shirt with a collar on (like a school shirt) and light brown slip on shoes with brown toggles on them. He is four feet 6 inches tall and of slim build. His left ear is pierced with a large diamond shaped stone and he has a small nose ring too. He was carrying a blue rucksack with several shades of blue on it. He is known occasionally to wear large gold rimmed glasses.

Sergeant Chris Day from the Missing from Home Team said; “Dre has only just turned twelve so is obviously very young and we are naturally very worried about him because of his age. He has been living in Leicestershire for about a month and we know he has connections to the Staffordshire and West Midlands areas and we are in touch with colleagues in those force areas too. We would really like to find him as quickly as possible to make sure he is safe and well.”

Anyone who thinks they may have seen Dre or know where is might me is asked to call 101.

Incident number: 18000393675

Detectives are appealing for witnesses to two incidents which led to a taxi driver being assaulted after being pulled out of his taxi which was then stolen.

At 10pm last night (Saturday 18 August) a man was sitting in his parked car on Narborough Road near Celt Street when he was threatened by two men who took his mobile phone.

Five minutes after that at 10.05pm a taxi driver on the corner of Hinckley Road and Cranmer Street was approached by two men offering him a mobile phone. When he refused to buy it they dragged him out of his taxi, assaulted him and drove off in his vehicle.

The vehicle was later found abandoned after it had been driven into a bus stop on Hinckley Road. The taxi driver was taken to the Leicester Royal Infirmary where he is being treated for a head injury but his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

Detective Sergeant Luke Wilsher said; “These incidents happened in a busy area of Leicester at 10pm on a Saturday night so there would have been lots of people around as well as motorists. We’d really like to speak to anyone in the area at the time who might have CCTV footage, dashcam footage or anyone who witnessed what happened. Did you see either of the two incidents or did you see the vehicle crashing into the bus stop? Did you record anything on your mobile phone that might be useful to us?

“If you know who was responsible for subjecting this taxi driver to a nasty assault then we’d like to hear from you.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call 101 using the reference number 18000393675
