Police have launched an urgent hunt to find a teenager who went missing after potentially suffering a head injury when he fell off his bike.
Noah Donohoe, 14, was last seen in the Shore Road area of north Belfast, Northern Ireland, at the weekend. He is thought to be from south Belfast.
Witnesses said they saw someone fitting Noah’s description fall off his bike on Sunday evening and a short time later he was seen cycling while naked.
A police spokesperson said: ‘An eyewitness believes they saw a young male matching Noah’s description fall off his bicycle on Sunday evening, possibly sustaining a head injury, in the vicinity of North Queen Street/York Street, but we do not know the specific time.
‘We believe Noah got back on his bicycle, cycling into Northwood Road where he then abandons all his clothing, as he is seen a short time later cycling while naked. We believe Noah then dropped his bicycle and left the area on foot.’
The schoolboy was on a black Apollo mountain bike wearing a khaki green North Face jacket, a tie-dye light blue/navy hoody, grey sweat shorts with an emblem on one leg and a khaki rucksack.
Police officers supported by air support units, police dogs and a tactical support group have been searching the area alongside community rescue service colleagues and local volunteers.
Police added: ‘Noah’s family and police are very concerned for Noah as this is completely out of character.’
The spokesman added that anyone with any information should contact police immediately on 101 quoting reference number 1619 of 21/06/20.
