A 10-year-old boy with a rare medical condition who has gone missing may already have fallen into a coma, police believe.

Scotland Yard has issued an urgent appeal to trace Malakhi Chijiutomi-Ghosh, who suffers from adrenal hyperplasia and requires medication three times a day.

He was last seen on CCTV footage in Thornton Heath, south London, shortly after 7am.

A police spokesman said: “It is vital that he is found so that medication can be administered. Having received no medication today there is a very real chance that he may have already fallen into a coma.”

Malakhi does not have a mobile phone, an Oyster card or any cash with him.

He is a light skinned black male, 4ft 7in and of slim build with short black curly hair. He was last seen wearing a coat and hat with a long-sleeved red/orange top with a picture of a meerkat playing the drums on it.

Malakhi has connections to the Thornton Heath, Victoria and Croydon areas of London and may be travelling on public transport, although he does not have an Oyster card.

Anyone who has information on Malakhi’s whereabouts should contact police.
