Search held for wanted boy
A MAJOR air and land search was launched after a teenager wanted by police was spotted.
Police officers were dispatched on foot while a national police air service helicopter was also drafted in to help locate the suspect, who was seen garden-hopping at the back of homes in Ringwood.
The drama unfolded at about 2pm last Wednesday when the 16- year-old boy was seen clambering over garden fences at the back of at least three homes in Winston Way.
He then made his way into Southampton Road, where he was seen “hopping”
over further gardens before moving in to the Wessex Road area.
Police received further reports of him on the north side of the A31, as well as Eastfield and in woods off Green Lane.
They confirmed they were searching a wooded area in the hope of tracing the teen, who they wanted to question about three offences including burglary, assault and theft. The boy was not found and has not been seen since.
