However, subsequent police investigations have picked up James walking down Henley Street just before 6am on Saturday 5th July, leading officers to believe he may be across the border in Warwickshire.

Detective Sergeant Alisha Reavley, from Bournville Police Station, said: “James’ disappearance is completely out of character and his family are desperate to make sure that he is safe.

“I would appeal directly to James to get in touch with either myself or a member of his family.”

James is described as 5 feet 7 ins tall, slim build with cropped brown hair, brown eyes and possibly a stubbly beard.

Anyone who has any information which will help trace James should call DS Reavley on 101 or alternatively information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
