Missing Elliot Philips

UPDATE: Elliot has now been found safe and well


An appeal is being made for help to find a 16-year-old boy missing from his Margate home.

Elliot Philips was at home on Sunday, November 13.

His mum Tara Doyle says she and his siblings are desperate to hear from him.

Her friend Tracey Denniss is helping the family and is due to put posters around the town today (November 19).

Tara’s message to Elliot, asking him to come home or at least get in touch, says: “Urgent appeal for my son Elliott

“I want you to know everything will be fine we can sort anything out that needs sorting out when you get home

“We are all missing you , your little brother and sister keep shouting for you thinking you’re asleep in your room

“I’m so worried as I haven’t heard from you for so long and I just want you to know that everything will be fine just come home and we can sort anything that needs to be sorted out – that’s what families about

“I’m so worried please make contact with me or someone and let them know you’re okay. No one is angry we are all just concerned

“This is totally out of character for you to not contact anyone

So if you or anyone that knows where you are please please please get in touch. I love you darling.”

Elliot is thought to be wearing a black hoodie and baseball cap.

A missing person’s report has been filed with Kent Police.
