Mother fears 'something bad' happened to her missing son who has been missing for nine days

A mother has said she fears 'something bad' has happened to her teenage son who has been missing for more than a week. 

Frankie Morris, from Anglesey, attended a party with friends Waunfawr near Snowdonia National Park last Saturday, May 1.

He was last seen the following day pushing his bike near the Vaynol Arms pub in Pentir, North Wales, on CCTV.

In a dedicated Facebook group set up to help share information about his whereabouts, Frankie's mother Alice Morris has said she fears something bad happened to him.

The post, which was shared with the groups 3,800 members, said: 'I know Frankie so well and I also know his lifestyle.

'I do think that he visited one of his friends in Bangor and something bad probably happened to him there.

Police in North Wales are urgently appealing for information relating to the disappearance of 18-year-old Frankie Morris (pictured) who has not been seen since last Sunday, May 2

'I have been asking the police to investigate the people who he knows in Bangor and go to their houses to check but the response seems to me to be a bit slow.

'I think they should make it a priority to investigate all his friends in Bangor.'

Now an urgent plea has been shared by police who are investigating the disappearance of the teenager whose full name is Frantisek Morris.

Officers are asking the public to check CCTV and dashcam footage in the Bangor and Caerhun areas of North Wales for any signs of the 18-year-old. 

Frankie was last seen on Sunday May 2 after he was spotted near the Vaynol Arms pub in Pentir, Gwynedd at 1.22pm. 

Police say Frankie, who is from Llandegfan, Anglesey, was walking north in the direction of Caerhun, wearing a grey T-shirt and blue shorts - the same clothes he wore to the party the evening before - and pushing a bike.
