Concerns are growing for a Sussex teenager who has been missing for eight days.

Jayjay Amaral, 17, has not been seen since he left his home in Dorset Gardens, Brighton, on 6 August.

Jayjay is described as of mediterranean appearance, about 5'3", and of stocky build, with short cropped brown hair and brown eyes. He habitually wears a grey tracksuit and trainers.

Detective Inspector Lee Horner of Sussex Police said; "There is no evidence at this stage that Jayjay has come to any harm, but this episode is out of character, and he took nothing with him for any prolonged stay or travel.

"His disappearance is currently unexplained and with every that passes without any word from or of him we are becoming more concerned."

If you have seen Jayjay or know where he may be please contact Sussex Police via 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 242 of August 11.

Why don't The Argus proofread their articles? "With every that passes" is just so bad, especially as the parents of this missing teen will be reading this article and will assume people at The Argus don't actually give a toss...

Hope Jayjay turns up safe and well.

So The Argus doesn't like posts that suggest he's gone to fight abroad, even though The Argus hasn't a clue where he is and will be reporting if he gets killed in Syria/Iraq.

Why are you saying he's gone off to fight in Syria or Iraq? Because he looks Arabic?!!!!

Now who is proving himself to be an idiot? You are because his surname is of Italian or Portugese origin and they are not muslims but catholic.

Get off your silly soap box and check into things before getting onto it please.

Why did he say it?

Possibly because of the high numbers of men leaving these shores without telling anyone where they are going, and turning up on the news boasting of killing people in the name of their religion. There has already been one from this region vanished and killed out there.

None of us know what has happened to him, so get off your high horse.

You seem unaware that islam is open to all races and nationalities.
