Police say that although Asher has previously gone missing, he has always returned home within a few days.

Officers are increasingly concerned for his welfare and the fact he needs to take medication.

Asher has been known to sleep on park benches and camp out, and the police and his family would urge that if there are any sightings of Asher then these are reported straight away to North Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 12210161240.
