A MAJOR search and rescue operation was launched after a 13-year-old boy went missing from his home - only for him to be found in the loft.

Around 40 mountain rescue volunteers, along with police, dog teams, and the police helicopter were alerted when the teenager left a note at his Blackburn home.

His frantic parents raised the alarm at around 9.30pm on Friday and an open window suggested he had fled the Worcester Road home.

Officers became concerned for the boy’s safety because the note led them to believe he would come to harm.

He was reported to be wearing only a pair of pyjamas. Police and the family quickly searched the property before requesting help from Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team.

A group of 10 team members joined the search and backup was also requested from Bowland Pennine and Bolton Mountain Rescue Teams, Cheshire Search and Rescue Team and SARDA England, the Search and Rescue Dog Association.

Following the initial search of the boy’s home, a ‘thorough’ hunt was carried out at the same time as the search of the neighbourhood.

Door-to-door enquiries were made and residents were asked to search their gardens as the cold and wet night turned into Saturday morning.

The search was called off at 1.30am when police found him in the loft under piles of belongings.

Officers said it was unclear whether he had been in the loft the whole time.

Graham Daly, from Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team, who co-ordinated the search, said: “We were contacted by Lancashire Police shortly after 11pm on Friday and they requested us to assist them in locating a missing 13-year-old boy from Blackburn.

“At midnight we met at the Red Lion pub in Whitebirk Road before heading to the scene.

“At that point, I had 10 team members with me but after arriving on the scene, I discovered that we needed additional resources.

“I put calls into the Bowland Pennine and Bolton Mountain Rescue Teams, along with calls to the Cheshire Search and Rescue Team and SARDA England.

“We conducted a search from the house in a 100-yard radius but before we could go any further, it was reported to us that the boy had been found in the attic of his house.

“If he had not been found, I think around 40 people would have joined the search.

“After the boy was found, I stood down the teams that were already on route to the scene.

“When I was briefed on the incident, I was initially concerned for the boy because I was told that he was in green pyjamas and it was horrible weather outside.

“I was concerned that if we didn’t find him soon then it might become more serious than it was at that point.”

A spokeswoman for Lancashire Police said: “A note was left giving immediate cause for concern for his welfare, and a window had been left open suggesting the boy had left home.

“Police and his family searched his home address and simultaneously an area search was carried out by police and mountain rescue.

“Fortunately, the boy was found safe and well around four hours later by a police officer well hidden within the loft of his home address.”

And just what, pray tell, will physical violence achieve, when it is patently obvious to any reasonably minded parent that, this child is wants to escape from something that is going wrong in his life. The root cause of which needs to be found out then resolved, before he repeats this and comes to serious harm.
We should be instilling in children, the confident ability to speak out when a wrong, perceived or otherwise, is being done to them, rather than beating them into a mentally tortured world of silence.
You should know that, abused children turn out to be abusive parents in the future and that anything that can be done now, to improve his life, will bear fruit in the future.
I find myself appalled, that in this day and age, that you even consider sharing (and that several others find themselves agreeing with) your misguided sense of what it is to be a parent.
For over 10 years now, the NSPCC, has been running a campaign to rid this country of child abuse, in all it's forms. So I suggest that you familiarise yourself with it and gain some knowledge to change your attitude.
It is my earnest hope that this young person gets all the help, support and encouragement to get through this period of his life then move on, towards an happier future.

While I agree, to a limited extent, with Woolywords, the boy needs to face the fact that his "gesture" cost the police a good deal of money, and put a large number of strangers to considerable inconvenience on his behalf.

He (and his parents) need to say a big, public, "Sorry"!

I think someone needs educating! The difference between a disciplined tap and it should only be a tap Is a lot different to hitting a child as you suggest! If more parents disciplined their children then our society would be a lot better!

And from your comment, how may I ask, is discipling a child going to stop them speaking out? I discipline my child yet he always speaks his mind. Again, what you suggest is that all parents who discipline are now mentally bullying their children too.

I take it that you either have no children or you do have children, never disciplined them, think their well behaved, but really are proper little sh1ts which every other parent does not want their own children to be like! And believe me, we all know people like that.

Children can be punished without hitting them. My little boy did something very naughty on Sunday. He was punished severely and he will not do it again. But he was not hit.

I am trying to teach him that he should not hit other children, especially not those smaller and younger than him. I can't see how that lesson would be drummed home if I was hitting someone smaller and younger than me when he angered me.

Agree completely. There is something going on with this boy that he and his family need to get to the bottom of. However, he needs to know that his actions have consequences and those consequences cost, in this case, a lot of time and money. At 13, a "good hiding" is pointless (and yes, I do believe a smack has its place if used wisely), but this child is old enough and needs to have the wrong that he did pointed out, loud and clear. Ideally by a senior professional who he has to take seriously. No point his parents doing it, because I suspect he is at the age where parents "just talk rubbish" and should be ignored. In other words, the teenage years....

Well, well, well, if the scoring system here reflects public opinion then we should be lobbying our MP's for the return of corporal punishment in all schools, the repeal of the laws on workplace bullying, the engagement of children in cleaning either in mills or up chimneys.
Perhaps courses for new Mothers, on the proper way to induce shaken baby syndrome; with Fathers being given tuition, on how to improve their backhand techniques, when swinging a belt.
Teachers and health carers should be instructed to mind their own business, if they come across a child whom has had lumps knocked out them or is patently neglected. Police officers encouraged to wade into any fight, with batons drawn and raining blows on both the innocent or guilty, alike? Thus effectively, putting an end to all the social advances that we have made in the last hundred years or so.

Perhaps I could sue my parents for neglect, since they were clearly were out of step with the majority here, with in turn, me being sued by my own children and grandchildren, for allowing them to stroke a cat rather than been beaten with another type of one!
