He said: "Jamie l would do anything just to hear you or to see you.

"Jamie all your family wants you here and your friends.

"Plz keep sharing this post all we want is my big brother to be safe and home xx"

A family friend said: "He just turned 16 and it's the first birthday that was celebrated without Jamie.

"Jamie always brought him his cake so this year was a different birthday he didn't want anyone to give him his cake."
