Now his father Alan Wilkins is offering up £500 to try to aid the effort.

In a Facebook post, he said: “My son Deakon has been missing for 15 days now and we are so worried.

“I have contacted the police today about any updates and any new info from the night club motion canvas they did last night.

“We know his phone stopped working at 4.52am the on the 14th but the police have CCTV footage of someone they are 99 per cent certain was Deakon heading towards Bristol Temple Meads station down Feeder Road.

“My wife and I will be viewing the footage to confirm this.

“We have now decided to put up a reward of £500 for information leading to the safe return of our boy Deakon.

“The reward will be coming out of our savings not from what people have donated to help find Deakon.

“If you know anything please ring 101 or contact the Crimestoppers 0800 555111.”
