Police are appealing for help to trace a missing 11 year old boy from Southall.

Borough Commander Ian Jenkins, Ealing Borough said:

"It is now the fifth day since Ibraheem went missing and we remain very concerned. We do not know where Ibraheem is or what has happened to him."

"From CCTV taken from Paddington Station at 5.30pm on Wednesday Ibraheem is seen walking close to a black man who we would believe Ibraheem was speaking to. We would very much like this man to contact us as he may be able to help us piece together where Ibraheem was planning on going and where he may be."

"We believe Ibraheem used the train and tube systems to get to Stratford. Our last sighting of him on CCTV is at 6.30pm when he leaves Stratford tube station to go out onto the Great Eastern Road. We have no confirmed sighting of him after this time."

Ibraheem is described as of Asian appearance, with short black hair, brown eyes, thin build, around 5ft tall, Ibraheem's family are originally from Pakistan.

He was last seen wearing his Featherstone School, Southall uniform of a blue tie, dark blazer, school badge, white shirt and black trousers and shoes. Over the top he has a blue Parka jacket with a fur trimmed hood and a blue woollen hat with a white band round it and the word Manchester on the white strip. Ibraheem didn't take any clothes or money with him.

Ibraheem Shah, lives with his foster parents in Southall, and hasn't been seen since Wednesday 27 January. We believe that he travelled from Southall to Paddington by train, he is seen on CCTV at Paddington station taking the escalator to the Bakerloo line, during this time he appears to speak to a black man who had been travelling on the train to Paddington. We then know that Ibraheem came out of Stratford tube station at 6.30pm having got off the Jubilee line, and was alone when he came out of the station.

Officers are issuing a photograph taken from the CCTV camera at Paddington station to the public to appeal to the man Ibraheem spoke to to come forward as he may have information that could assist us in finding Ibraheem.

Police are appealing to anyone with information or who may have seen Ibraheem to contact officers on 0208 358 0100 or to call Missing People on 0500 700 700.
