Police are searching for a schoolboy last seen two weeks ago after a row with his parents.

Mohammed Pervez, 15, walked out of his Sharjah home on July 4 and has not returned.

Mohammad Aftab Alam said his son was either wearing a blue T-shirt and brown trousers or a white kandura.

The Indian national told local media that his wife, Tusi Parveen, has not slept since from worry and that his son probably had at most Dh8.

Mohammed left home after a row over watching YouTube videos late at night, it was reported.

Sharjah and Dubai police forces have appealed on social media to the public for help, and the Indian embassy has been informed.

Officers have been searching nearby mosques, schools, public places, hospitals and shopping malls for the pupil, who attends Delta English School in Sharjah.

"Sharjah Police urges the public, if anybody has any information about the 15-year-old boy Mohammed Pervez, who has gone missing from his family's home, they should call 80040/ 065943210," police tweeted.
