According to his mother, the teenage boy was not truthful about his whereabouts.

Harvey Owen’s mother stated that she was not concerned about his whereabouts because he had given false information about his destination.

Ms Owen posted on Facebook that she was not concerned about her partner’s whereabouts the day before, as he had lied about his plans. However, the night before, when she was unable to contact him and he claimed to be staying at his friend’s grandad’s house, she became worried. Her friends assured her that he simply had no signal.

‘Well-thought of’

Harvey Owen left Meole Brace School in the Shropshire town earlier this year and is currently studying for his A-Levels at Shrewsbury College.

During an interview with the BBC today, Crystal Owen, the mother of the individual in question, revealed that she was not aware of her son’s camping trip. She had believed he was staying at his friend’s grandfather’s house.

The teenager has three brothers and sisters.

The head teacher of Meole Brace School, Alan Doust, stated that last year, Jev, Harvey, and Wilf graduated from Year 11, while Hugo graduated the year before. All four boys were highly regarded and familiar to the school community.
