Christchurch police say they have concerns for a missing teenager last seen at his home two weeks ago.
Chinyanta Mfwembe,14, left the house in Sydenham on 7 January.
Senior Constable Andrew Ross says the Zimbabwean teenager has lived in New Zealand for five years with his family and speaks good english.
He says police do not have specific fears for his safety, but have concerns as he has not been in contact with his family.
Mr Ross says the teenager has gone missing before and has been spotted around the city in the past two weeks.
