Although the group split up back in 2016, the band’s official Instagram page shared a picture of Harry alongside the plea.

There have supposedly been sightings of Harry near Kings Cross, London.

Former Palma Violets frontman Chilli Jesson appears to be running the group’s social media accounts.

A statement read: “Please help us find @harryjones our younger brother.

“He was last heard from at the end of January and although there have been supposed sightings near Kings Cross, London there is nothing substantial to base that on.

“We are extremely concerned for Harry and need to find him. Please share far and wide.

“Harry if you see this, we love you and want to make sure you’re ok.”

Palma Violets was made up of bassist/vocalist Chilli, guitarist/vocalist Sam Fryer, Peter Mayhew on keyboards and drummer Will Doyle.

Formed in 2011, their first single Best of Friends was voted NME’s song of the year for 2012.

The band’s debut album 180 was released in 2013.

An interview by Apple Music host Matt Wilkinson with former member Sam in 2018 confirmed Palma Violets had split up.

At the time, Sam said: “Two years ago we decided to call it quits. We didn’t fall out, we just changed as people.

“We were 18 years old when we started… when you hit 24, after years of touring, I think you just become different people.

“We just moved on.”

All the members of Palma Violets apart from Chilli formed a new band called Gently Tender.
