Kahn is described as 4 "11, with short dark hair and was last seen wearing black jeans, a black puffer jacket and a black hat with the Chicago Bulls logo on it.

She continued: "He is in an unfamiliar country and doesn't speak much English. He has only recently arrived in Deptford and won't know his way around.

"While we are keeping an open mind, we cannot rule out that Mohammed has come into contact with people who may wish him harm and it is important that anyone with any information about his whereabouts comes forward."

Anyone to see Kahn is to call 999 immediately, citing the reference 7180/01DEC, while people with relevant information should call 101 or crime stoppers on 0800 555 111 for anonymous tips.
