He had been seen in Woolwich

A young boy who went missing from his Dartford home more than a month ago has been found.

Police had grown increasingly concerned for Adrian Nyanja, 13, after he was reported missing from the town on April 25.

The student at St John’s Catholic School in Gravesend, had been spotted around Woolwich while he was missing, where he used to live until February.

But after more than a month of waiting, and “exhaustive enquiries” from Met Police, the teenager, who has links to Abbey Wood, was found safe and well today (Monday, June 5).

Officers in Greenwich who had been searching for the youngster thanked the public for their assistance.
