Hundreds of people will take to the streets today as the hunt for missing Burnley teenager Declan Edwards intensifies.

Search parties will be setting off from Thompson Park at 1-30pm, Rosegrove Post Office at 2-30pm and Burnley Central Library at 6pm.

More than 400 flyers were handed out yesterday while a “Missing Declan Edwards” Facebook group now has more than 1,000 members.

Hayley Bennett, a family friend who has helped organise the searches, said: “The family has been overwhelmed with all the support they’ve received, we all have. We’ve covered Leyland Road, Queen’s Park, Pit Top, Rowley Lake, Todmorden Road and the Coal CLough Lane area. We’ve used more than 400 flyers but we’ve still not found anything. We’re looking for anybody who can help print us more flyers.”

Declan (16) was last seen in Towneley Park at 2pm on Sunday. Anybody with any information is urged to contact the police on 101 quoting log number 1416 of May 4th.
