An ailing mother is appealing for help to find her missing son, Alasan Sowe.
According to a member of the family, Alasan last communicated with them about four years ago and efforts to trace him since then have been futile.
"We have been looking for him for the last three to four years and we don't know if he is dead or alive," said his elder brother, who lives in the USA.
He continued: "Our mum is ailing and distressed. Her only wish right now is to see Alasan. She's appealing to anyone who may be aware of his whereabouts to contact the family."
Born and raised in Bakoteh, Alasan entered Europe by sea. He has a son in The Gambia.
