Police are asking for help from the public as they try to make sure a missing 18-year-old is safe.

The teen, Charlie MacIntyre from Harlow, may have travelled to Hertfordshire, Essex Police believe.

He also has connections to Chelmsford and the force added that he could have travelled across Essex, or to Herts or London.

Charlie was last spoken to on the phone on Saturday January 21 and has not been seen since.

Essex Police described him as 5ft 6ins tall, slim, with short brown hair, and said he may be wearing glasses.
