Fears for missing teen last seen on St Patrick’s Day

POLICE are increasingly concerned for the welfare of a young boy who has been missing since St Patrick’s day and was reported to have been at the parade in Enniskillen on that day.
Police say the 15-year-old John Crumlish has been missing from the Omagh area since Saturday March 17th, however it has been reported that he was last seen in Enniskillen.
It was reported on social media that the young boy may have been in Enniskillen or the surrounding areas over the weekend and local people are being urged to come forward if they have any information.
A spokesman for the St Patrick project who organised the parade and activities urged anyone who might have seen the missing teenager in Enniskillen to get in touch with local police as a matter of urgency.
“We would add to the PSNI appeal that anyone who thinks they might have seen John to please get in touch with the police as a matter of urgency. If you prefer – you can contact ‘St Patrick’ on Facebook and we will pass the information on. Anything at all to get John home to his family as soon as possible,” he added.
The appeal has been circulated widely on Facebook with thousands of people from across the North sharing the post in the hope of reuniting John with his family.
Police are currently appealing for anyone who may have seen John or has any information about his whereabouts to get in touch.
A spokesman for Fermanagh PSNI issued the alarm on their Facebook page saying, “We are increasingly concerned for the welfare of 15-year-old John Crumlish who has been missing from the Omagh area since Saturday 17th March. If you have any information on his current whereabouts or which may assist our investigation, please contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1111 of 17th March.”
