A Twickenham schoolboy who had been missing for nearly three weeks has returned home safe and well, police said today.
Sam Jeffries had not been seen by his family since leaving home on the morning on December 3.
His family and police grew particularly concerned at the beginning of last week after all contact ceased and no one was able to get through to his mobile phone.
Police today thanked everyone who had supported the appeal.
Police are still searching for Amber Young, who was last seen on December 10 in Hanworth Road, Hounslow. Concern is growing for the 23-year-old's safety.
