Police concern for missing teenager

Police and family are concerned for the safety of a teenager missing from an upmarket Auckland suburb since Saturday.

Nicholas David Stafford Matthews, 19, from Remuera has not been in contact with friends or family since the weekend.

Acting Sergeant Dale Blyde said police were particularly concerned because Matthews had no history of running away.

"It's extremely out of character for him," Blyde said.

He was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt, black knee-length shorts and sport shoes with white socks.

He is of medium build, about 180cm tall, has short dark hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information about his disappearance should call 111.
