Des­per­ate search for miss­ing man

Macclesfield Express - - CARE HOME WORKERS SCANDAL -

THE dis­traught dad of a young man who went miss­ing after a night out with friends has made a des­per­ate ap­peal for help to find him.

Cas­par Black­burn, who is an as­sis­tant man­ager at Carper­tright in Mac­cles­field, was last seen at the Slug and Let­tuce in Sale in the early hours of Sun­day morn­ing.

He was sat on a bench out­side the venue with friends, but did not go back in­side with the group and has not been seen since.

The 22-year-old, from Sale, failed to re­turn home and didn’t turn up to his job at Lyme Green Re­tail Park. Cas­par, who has been de­scribed as a car enthusiast, has not re­turned to col­lect his Nis­san 350Z he left out­side his friend’s house be­fore go­ing out.

Friends have said this is strange be­hav­iour for Cas­par, who would never leave his car any­where.

Robert Black­burn, Cas­par’s dad, has di­rectly ap­pealed to his son to re­turn home say­ing “no­body is go­ing to be an­gry”. Robert, 52, from Sale, said: “Ev­ery­one is dis­traught. It is for not know­ing, no­body has heard any­thing at all from Face­book, Twit­ter or his phone.

“It is to­tally out of char­ac­ter. He is the as­sis­tant man­ager of Car­petright, a job where he has never missed a day of work. He is a car enthusiast. He has mod­i­fied his car and is al­ways tin­ker­ing with it.

“Ac­cord­ing to his friends, it is to­tally out of char­ac­ter to leave his car be­hind. Please come home as soon as pos­si­ble. Ev­ery­one is re­ally wor­ried about you. No­body is go­ing to be an­gry with him at all, he will get a big hug when he comes home.”

Best friend Billy said: “He was on the benches out­side and his friends went in­side. He didn’t say any­thing, he just dis­ap­peared. There was no com­mu­ni­ca­tion – his phone is off.”

Cas­par is 5ft 8in tall and has short gin­ger hair. He was last seen wear­ing a blue polo shirt and blue jeans.

Det Insp Carl Gib­ert said: “Casper has not been seen now since Sun­day and this is com­pletely out of char­ac­ter for him.

“His fam­ily are ex­tremely wor­ried about him and I would urge you to get in touch with po­lice if you see Casper or know where he is.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact po­lice on 101 quot­ing ref­er­ence MP/17/ 0110152 , or call the in­de­pen­dent char­ity Crimestop­pers , anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.
