esidents of the town of Hythe were left concerned after a young boy half n*ked knocked on their doors begging for help

Cops are investigating after a young child was spotted ‘half n*ked’ knocking on doors in Kent pleading for help – with fears growing for his safety.

The boy, said to be aged around 12, was seen on Tuesday night in the town of Hythe, near Folkestone and was partially clothed.

Described as having a tanned complexion and dark hair, the boy spoke English to the strangers, begging them for help, before running off into the rainy night.

Police were called to the road, just yards from the seafront, at 9:37pm but despite cops and coastguard officers searching the area, they could not find the child.

Resident Maureen Wright, 72, said: “The police knocked at our door.

“Apparently he was soaking in his underwear.

“The police were around most of last night.

“They had police dogs and lots of police around.

One neighbour, who asked not to be named, said she was “scared” for his safety.

She said: “I spoke to the police last night.

“He knocked on the door and tried a couple of others.

“I was hoping by now they would have found something.

“I have heard sirens and the helicopter has been up most of the morning.”

In a statement, police said: “Kent Police was called at 9.37pm on Tuesday 23 January 2018 to a concern for the welfare of a boy in Fisher Close, Hythe.

“It was reported that the boy, believed to be around 12 years old, knocked on the door of a house, asked for help and then ran away.

“The boy was described as being partially clothed and had dark hair and a tanned complexion.

“Officers attended the area and carried out a search, with assistance from the Coastguard, but he was not located.”

“Enquiries into the circumstances of this incident are ongoing.”
