15-year-old Reuben Musgrave has been missing since May 10 and has stopped contacting his family.
POLICE are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 15-year-old boy from South Molton who has not been seen for more than a month.
Reuben Musgrave was last seen outside Barnstaple police station at around 7.30pm on May 10 when he walked off from his foster carer.
A police spokesman said the teenager made several calls to family members after he initially went missing indicating he was well.
On June 6 he told his family he was in London and was planning on staying there with friends.
Reuben had only recently moved to South Molton. He has friends in Bideford and possibly in the Peckham area of South London. He is also known to visit Appledore and Exeter.
Reuben is described as black, 5ft 8, of slim build with short black afro hair.

When he was last seen he was wearing a bright yellow t-shirt and may have also had a grey hoody, a black and grey jacket and white and red trainers.
A police spokesman said: “Reuben is only 15 years and is therefore vulnerable and potentially at risk of harm.
“He has been missing for some time and his family are worried that he is no longer in contact.
“We are appealing to Reuben to make contact with the police or his family, and also to anyone who may know of his whereabouts to contact the police so we can make sure he is safe and well.”
