THE worried mum of a missing teenager has issued a plea over his whereabouts after he vanished almost a week ago.

Stephanie Bonner took to the social media website Facebook today to say it had been 'seven agonising days' since Rhys was last seen.

The 19-year-old, from Barlanark, was last seen last Wednesday, July 24. His family said he got into a taxi at the Corinsburgh shops in Easterhouse at 7pm. He was also possibly seen in the Calton area of the city. 

He left his home in Garlieston Road, Barlarnark and told them he was going to meet a friend. 

He failed to return home and his family subsequently reported him missing on Friday, July 26.

His mum said: "My son is still missing. Please get my boy home safe, it's been seven agonising days. Please, we are broken as a family. Please, I need my Rhys home we all do."

Police said extensive enquiries have been carried out and the last confirmed sighting of Rhys was around 7:55 pm on Wednesday evening at shops in Connisborough Road, Easterhouse.  He was then seen walking with a woman along Connisborough Road before turning into Gardyne Street.

Officers are continuing to review CCTV images and speak to family and friends for any additional information which could lead them to locate Rhys. 

Inspector Brian Fraser said: “Rhys maintains regular contact with his family and the fact that no-one has seen or heard from him is very unusual and his family is becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare. 

"We are continuing to conduct enquiries including reviewing CCTV footage, searching the local area and speaking to Rhys’ family and friends to gather additional information which could assist us in locating him.

"I would appeal to anyone who may have seen Rhys or have any information as to his whereabouts to please contact us. 

"His family wants him home and we just want to know he is safe and well.”
