UPDATE: Missing Bosham teenager has made contact with family

THE family of a missing Bosham teenager has said he is safe.

Jamie Murphy, the teenager’s father said on Chichester Police’s Facebook page: “Missing lad from Bosham is alive and safe I have spoken to him in person he is in London but is okay.

“Thank you to the police for all of their efforts and support they have been fantastic and to all of the people who have shared the posts and made this contact possible.”

A picture of Luke Murphy, 18, was released last week, as his family had not made contact with him since December.
