Renewed appeal for missing 21-year-old man from Harlesden

MISSING: Ballentyne Hylton

POLICE HAVE released new images of a 21-year-old man missing from Harlesden as they renew their appeal for help in finding him.

Ballentyne Hylton was last seen on 5 August 2017 in the Harlesden area of Brent.

He is a black man, of slim build, about 6ft tall with short dark hair.

He has various tattoos including a shooting star and the name 'Leo' on his neck. He also has a rose tattooed on his forearm.

He is known to frequent the Brent, Peckham and Merton areas.

DC Zanne Kriel from Brent's Missing Persons Unit, said: "Officers are growing increasingly concerned for Ballentynes welfare.

"His disappearance is out of character and he has not made contact with his family throughout numerous significant occasions including his 21st birthday, Christmas and New Year and more recently, the birth of his niece.

"Ballentyne was also due to start a new job shortly after his disappearance but did not attend.

"I would urge anyone who has any information on Ballentyne's whereabouts to get in touch."

Jade Madden, Ballentyne's sister said: "Ballentyne is loved dearly by his family. I was four months pregnant when he went missing and he was very much looking forward becoming an uncle.

"We are all very worried about him and need to know he is safe and well. It is completely out of character for him not to get in touch with his family, especially over the Christmas and New Year period.

"He was really looking forward to his 21st birthday and for him to have gone missing is very strange.

"Ballentyne we are not angry or upset with you for going missing. We just want you home safe and well and for you to be with us.

"Kyra-Lin would also really like to meet her uncle. I think that she looks like you when you were younger. Cleo would also like you to be here for her graduation this summer. We miss you, we love you!

"If anyone knows where Ballentyne is or have any information about him please get in contact with the police. This is very hard on our family for not knowing where he is."

Officers are increasingly concerned for Ballentyne's wellbeing and would urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to call Brent Police on 020 8721 3102 or Missing People on 116000.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
