Desperate search for Oldham teen continues

Desperate searches are underway for an Oldham teenager who has been missing from home for over a week.

Dillon Duffy (18) was dropped off at Asda in Chadderton at 8am on June 18 because he said he needed a bottle of water, his mum Donna, said.

When he didn’t return home that day, Dillon’s parents searched his room and found a note, which made them think he was feeling low.

It is now understood that in the afternoon of June 18, Dillon (pictured) boarded a train at Manchester Piccadilly, which was headed for London Euston – where CCTV captured images of him.

Police said Dillon, who is 5ft, 9″ tall and of medium build, was last seen wearing a dark grey ‘The North Face’ hooded jacket, with a white logo on the chest. He also wore a beige baseball cap, black tracksuit bottoms and Nike trainers. He was carrying a black Puma backpack.

His family believe he may also have a blue ‘The Simpsons’ blanket with him.

Dillon’s mum, Donna said: “He’s a good lad and anyone that knows him, friends, school, work, all know Dillon. They know his nature, he’s inquisitive, friendly, a bit of a joker. But he’s also a family boy, loves sitting at his nanna’s having chats.

“He’s feeling low and I didn’t see the signs. He just needs someone to talk to.”

An urgent appeal has been put out by the Missing People charity. It read ‘Dillon, we are here for you whenever you are ready; we can listen, talk you through what help you need, pass a message for you and help you to be safe.’

The case has now been passed to the Missing Persons Unit in London.

Anyone with any information about Dillon’s whereabouts should contact police immediately on 101, quoting ref: 01/491880/24.
