The family of a 14-year-old boy believed to be missing in the Darwin area are appealing for public assistance to locate him.
Police say Shaun Wurrumarrba had moved away from his family in Groote Eylandt and was living in Darwin when he disappeared.
After initial inquiries in the city failed to locate the missing 14-year-old, his mother decided to come to Darwin to help with the search.
She's issued a plea for him to make contact with his family or police, telling Shaun that he has nothing to fear and will be safe at home.
Police say anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers.
