POLICE are continuing their efforts to help trace a missing teenager from Cambridgeshire who disappeared a fortnight ago.

Leaflets appealing for help to trace missing teenager Theo Kawalla, last seen on CCTV in Peterborough in the early hours of February 19, will be handed out at today’s Peterborough United match.

Two thousand copies will be given to Posh fans at London Road before their clash with Exeter City as the hunt to find the popular teen continues.

Police have also released details of four people they believe may be able to assist in the search for the missing teenager.

The 16-year-old was last seen on CCTV walking past Multi York in Lower Bridge Street. He had been dropped off in Peterborough city centre at around 7.30pm by his father to spend the evening with his friends but was reported missing on Sunday.
