Bella Thorne thanks FBI after alleged hacker is arrested
Bella Thorne has paid tribute to the FBI after the man accused of hacking her and threatening to release naked pictures of her was arrested.Last year, the 23-year-old actress posted her own nude images online to take her "power back" following threats she received from a person who claimed to have naked pictures of her and after an arrest was made this week, Bella thanked the FBI for "searching tirelessly" for the perpetrator.
Huw, who has autism, has been described as being a 'loving and caring person', who usually dotes on his family and always keeps in contact.
But his parents said they 'fear the worst' as they have not seen him since Christmas, or heard from him since May, when he told them about his new job at a coffee shop.
His mobile phone was found smashed at his previous address and he hasn't used his bank account since he went missing, detectives said.
Huw's devastated parents, Steve and Mary, have spoken of their heartache and fears that he may have been exploited.
Huw has three siblings - older sister Sarah, younger brother Ewan, and younger sister Eva.
Steve said: 'This is just not like Huw at all. He's always made a special effort to talk to us but in the last 12 weeks we have not heard a thing from him. No one has.
Marvel fans find incredible WandaVision and Loki connection that demands a rewatch
He Who Remains and Scarlet Witch might be linkedWhen Jonthan Majors' He Who Remains talks to Loki and Sylvie after they make it to the Citadel at the End of Time, he eventually crosses a threshold that means he no longer knows what's going to happen next. On Reddit, a fan noticed that this moment syncs up pretty much perfectly with Wanda Maximoff's transformation into the Scarlet Witch in the WandaVision finale. Check out the two scenes side by side below.
'He has missed his siblings' birthdays and that has never happened before.
'He's always been there, or at least rung if he couldn't be there, but to not even try and send a message is just totally unlike him.'
Nottinghamshire Police said he vanished without taking his mobile phone or any of his belonging and it does not appear he had any money on him when he vanished.
Despite numerous appeals, there have been no sightings of Huw since he first went missing on May 6 in the Sherwood area of Nottingham.
His father Steve said he is 'fearing the worst' and urged Huw to make contact with somebody so his family knows that he is 'safe and well'.
He continued: 'You fear the worst, thinking that something may have happened to him, or that he has had a mental health episode and is in need of help.
'I want to appeal to find him. I am hoping he will read this or be made aware we are all desperate to find him.

'I would like to say to Huw - no matter what you are thinking, or how difficult you think the situation is, we just want you to make contact.
'You don't need to come home we just want to know you are safe and well. Please make contact with someone.
'We are all devastated not having heard from you. We love you no matter what and always will.'
He described Huw as being 'a warm hearted really engaging person who goes out of his way to help people and finds it easy to make friends, even with complete strangers'.
He added: 'Huw has high functioning autism, which can make him vulnerable, and our biggest worry is that someone may have exploited this in him.'
Huw moved to Nottingham just after Christmas to stay with a woman who he had recently met through a friend.
His parents said it was unusual as Huw did not discuss the decision with them, and left at very short notice.
After moving, he still kept in contact regularly, but by the time of his birthday in mid-April, he appeared to be more distant and did not want to speak to his family on his birthday.

Detective Chief Inspector Nick Waldram, who is leading the investigation, said: 'This is an unusual case.
'Huw appears to have just vanished and we can find no signs of anything which may indicate where he is.

'We are appealing for Huw himself to come forward and let us or his family or friends know he is alright.
'Or if anyone has seen him or knows where he is to please get in contact. His family are clearly beside themselves over his disappearance and we need to find him.'
He is described as 6 foot 2 inches tall, of slim build, with bushy brown hair and a full beard.
He has two tattoos on his arms, one is of a fish on his right forearm and one is of a black and white skull on his left bicep.
