Mr Mitchell is known to have left another pub, Wetherspoons, just after 00:00 and he was alone when seen walking down the Longman at 01:00 on CCTV on 10 November, his family said.

Adam is a typical teenager who loves heavy metal music. He constantly wore his off-cut denim jacket that was decorated with patches of his favourite bands, it was his pride and joy. He was wearing it when he was last seen over the top of his leather jacket, he always wore black jeans and black boots. Adam has a very distinctive look, long flowing brown hair and a beard. He didn’t wear jewellery unless you include his headphones, he was always listening to music when he walked anywhere. He was friendly and open with everyone he met and he was a gentle, fun-loving young man who was loyal to his friends. This is totally out of character for Adam who rarely strayed from home without letting his parents know when he would be home.”
