A WORRIED mum fears "something bad" has happened to her teenage son who has been missing for 10 days.
Frantisek Morris, who is known as Frankie, was last seen walking in Pentir, North Wales, at about 1.20pm on May 2.
The 18-year-old had attended a party in Waunfawr, near Snowdonia National Park, the night before his disappearance.
North Wales Police released an image of Mr Morris walking past the Vaynol Arms pub in Pentir at around the time he was last seen.
More than 4,500 people have joined Facebook group Help Find Frankie Morris as part of efforts to locate the teenager.
Writing in the group, his mum Alice Morris said: “Thank you all so much for all your effort to find my son Frankie, you don’t even know how much I appreciate it!
“I know Frankie so well and I also know his lifestyle. I do think that he visited one of his friends in Bangor and something bad probably happened to him there.”
Detective Chief Inspector Lee Boycott said: "We are really grateful to the community for the hundreds of phone calls and online reports we have received in response to our previous appeals. As a result we are examining numerous different lines of inquiry.
'I would like to appeal directly to anyone who attended a rave in the disused quarry above Waunfawr on Saturday May 1 who hasn't already come forward to do so.
"I understand people may be reluctant due to the fact that the rave was not an organised event, but I would like to reassure you that we are only concerned in piecing together as much information about Frankie's movements as possible.
"If you attended the rave, and you have any photos or video whatsoever on your mobile, or you have any information however small, that may help us.
"Residents in Pentir will have noticed an increased police presence in the area over recent days, which will continue.
"If you were in the area on Sunday May 2 and may have seen Frankie please get in touch, especially if you have dashcam or any other form of video.
"Finally, I would ask residents in Pentir and the surrounding areas to check any sheds or outbuildings on their land, and contact us if you find anything out of the ordinary."
Ogwen Mountain Rescue was called out to assist with the search on Monday.
A statement on the organisation’s Facebook page said: “The team were called out on Monday evening to support North Wales Police in the ongoing search for missing teenager Frankie Morris.
“Around 25 team members searched roads, hedgerows and fields out from where a bicycle had been found.
"With no finds by darkness, the team stood down pending further taskings from NWP.”
