Police and family hold serious concerns for his welfare as he suffers from a severe medical condition which requires medication.

The boy is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 155cm tall with a slim build, brown hair and brown eyes.

He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, pink shirt and tan-coloured pants.

UPDATE 3pm: Police are seeking urgent public assistance as they search for a missing teenage boy amid serious concerns for his welfare.

William Latter, 16, was last seen at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital last night, where he had been receiving medical treatment.

It is believed he left the hospital about 6pm with a rainbow coloured micro-scooter and may have been sighted at South Bank later that night.

His family hold serious concerns for his welfare and police have urged anyone who may have seen him to contact Policelink on 131 444.

Detective Inspector Jo-Anne Henderson said William required ongoing medical treatment.

"As you would appreciate, both police and his mother are very concerned about his welfare and we're appealing for public assistance to locate him as soon as possible," she said.

"One of other concerns we have is that this young boy is of a very trusting nature.

"He may seek assistance if he starts to feel unwell."

Det Insp Henderson said the teen did not have a mobile phone or money with him.

He is described as caucasian in appearance, 155cm tall with a slim build, brown hair and brown eyes.

He was wearing a black baseball cap, pink shirt and tan-coloured pants at the time of his disappearance.
