A concerned mum has issued a heartfelt plea for her teenage son to come home. Sharon Farnworth said her son Denholm, 15, left his home in Whalley Range last Tuesday while she took her mum to the hospital. Denholm was last seen on April 25.
Denholm’s disappearance came the day after the family returned from a holiday in Mallorca where they had spent 10 days.
Sharon said she is “petrified” for her son who left home without his medication or any money. She has also said that he has not answered her calls.
Sharon added: “It’s been really tough. I’m petrified that he’s going to get into something that he doesn’t know how to get out of.
“He’s a good kid, a great kid. He’s very vulnerable.”

Sharon said Denholm “likes to be the class clown” and that “he’ll always be at the center of what’s going on – that’s what petrifies me”.
She added that he has no money for food or for anything that he might need to survive.
It is currently believed that Denholm, a student at Castlefield Campus, could be in the Gorton area.
He has been described as 5ft 8ins tall, with blue eyes and of slim build. Sharon said she believes he could currently have cornrows in his hair.
Greater Manchester Police have confirmed that they are aware of Denholm’s appearance.
They said anyone who sees Denholm or has information about his whereabouts can contact them on 101 or online.
