Beighton residents took part in a house to house search for still missing 12-year-old Jamie O’Sullivan this morning.

Searchers met at 10:30 in Beighton to scour the neighbourhood in the hope of finding him.

Paul Blackwell, who organised the search said: “I have children at a similar age and I followed the story from the beginning. I thought Beighton could do with some help so I started the campaign.

“There were about 26 people in the search party and I gave them each a photo of Jamie to show residents. I placed bigger photos in shops, hairdressers, cafes and local schools.”

He added he is trying to organise another search for Saturday if Jamie isn’t found before then.

Jamie O’Sullivan has been missing since 27th November and was last seen at around 12pm in his hometown of Swallownest

Police believe he is staying with friends in Beighton and has contacted family members but they are still concerned.

Detective Inspector Nigel Taaffe said: “Until Jamie is seen and spoken to by our officers we will still continue to appeal for information.

“If Jamie is reading this: please get in touch with police and let us know where you are. Lots of people are worried about you and want to make sure you’re alright.”

Jamie is described as being around 5ft 4 with a slim-medium build, short blond mousy hair, and was last seen wearing a black puffer coat, black school trousers, black trainers, and a white shirt.
