Police in Christchurch are concerned for the welfare of a 12-year-old boy who has been missing from his home for a week.

Riapo Tipene has been seen twice since he left his home in the suburb of Aranui last Friday, and on one occasion he ran off after being spoken to by someone who knows him.

Police say anyone who knows where he is should contact them, or his family.
