A TEENAGER who had been missing since Monday has been found "safe and well".

There were growing concerns for the welfare of 14-year-old Denzel Muduma yesterday, with West Yorkshire Police releasing a further appeal.

But the teenager from Wakefield has been found "safe and well" today. 

He had last been seen before today on Monday at his home, at about 1pm.

Police had thought Denzel had travelled to Bradford, as he has many links to the area, but it is believed he has been in the Wakefield area since he was reported missing on Monday night.

Officers thanked everyone who shared the appeals.
