Search for missing Ivybridge teenager

Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a missing teenager from Ivybridge.

Ryan Ranson, 17, was last seen at around 7am on Tuesday 20 January at Devonport Dockyard after he was dropped off at work.

He was reported missing by his family later that day after his colleagues called them asking where he was.

Ryan is described as white, of medium build, with short brown hair. He was wearing jeans, trainers, a blue fleece, a black coat with a hood and he had a rucksack with him.

Officers believe he may be in the Torquay or Ivybridge area and are carrying out searches and enquiries to locate him.

Sergeant Jonathan Ross, Lost Person Search Manager, based at Totnes, said: “The family are really worried about Ryan as his disappearance is completely out of character.

“If he was trying to get home from work he may have caught a bus from Plymouth to Ivybridge, or may have gone on to Torquay.

“If anyone remembers seeing Ryan yesterday or knows where he is now please get in touch.”

Anyone with information about Ryan’s whereabouts is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 507 of 20 January.
