Police have launched a public appeal as Cartel Bushnell, 13, remained missing 11 days after he was last seen on a street in Poole, Dorset

Police are still appealing for information to find a teenage boy who has been missing now for 11 days.

Cartel Bushnell, 13, was last seen on Herbert Avenue, in Poole, at around 9.25pm on Friday, August 13.

Dorset Police last week issued an appeal for the public to help find the teenager, saying that while there was nothing to suggest Cartel has come to any harm but wanted to locate him due to his young age.

However five days later, police have confirmed that Cartel is still classed as a missing person.

‘There is no update, he is still missing,’ a force spokesman said on Monday.

Cartel is around five feet six inches tall and of slender build with dark brown hair that is shaved above the ears and longer on top. He was last seen wearing a grey tracksuit with black trainers.

Inspector Dave Kewley, of Poole Police, said: ‘While there is nothing to suggest Cartel has come to any harm, due to his young age we are keen to locate him to ensure he is safe and well.’

He added: ‘I would urge anyone who has seen Cartel, or a boy matching the description given, to please contact Dorset Police immediately.

The teenager was  last seen on Herbert Avenue, in Poole, Dorset at around 9.25pm on Friday, August 13

Anyone with information or knowledge as to Cartel’s whereabouts is asked to contact Dorset Police or by calling 101, quoting incident number 55210130959
