Fam­ily’s fears for miss­ing man Alan

Wishaw Press - - HOLIDAY HELL - Ross Thom­son

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion to trace a 25- year- old Wishaw man who dis­ap­peared while on hol­i­day in Tener­ife this sum­mer.

Alan Jef­frey was last seen on Sun­day, June 10, on the Span­ish is­land, whilst vis­it­ing with his girl­friend.

He was due to re­turn home that day how­ever he in­ti­mated that he was go­ing to con­tinue his hol­i­day with some friends.

His girl­friend then re­turned home by her­self.

Alan’s fam­ily have had no con­tact with him since then. The fam­ily then re­ported him miss­ing to po­lice on June 26.

Alan is de­scribed as white, around 5ft 9 inches to 5ft 10 inches, of stocky build with short, re­ced­ing brown hair. There is no de­scrip­tion of his cloth­ing that he was wear­ing when last seen.

In­spec­tor Keith Camp­bell ad­mit­ted of­fi­cers can’t rule out that some harm may have come to Alan.

He said: “Whilst it may seem an un­usual move for po­lice in Scot­land to be in­ves­ti­gat­ing a per­son miss­ing in Spain, we are li­ais­ing with Span­ish au­thor­i­ties and Europol with our en­quiry.

“All of Alan’s fam­ily, friends and as­so­ci­ates are here in Scot­land and he was re­ported miss­ing here. A num­ber of of­fi­cers have been work­ing on this en­quiry for some time how­ever it has been chal­leng­ing as we haven’t re­ceived much in­for­ma­tion so far and this is why we are now ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic for their help.

“Given the pas­sage of time and with some of the in­for­ma­tion we have re­ceived, we can­not rule out that some harm may have come to Alan.

“He may have de­cided him­self not to re­turn home, how­ever it is very un­usual for him not to be in touch with his fam­ily for such a long pe­riod of time.

“We do know that he had in­ti­mated he was plan­ning to travel to Mar­bella with some friends how­ever he has not been heard from since. We re­main fo­cused on trac­ing him safe and well.

“If Alan him­self is read­ing this ap­peal, please get in touch with your fam­ily as they are very con­cerned.

“I would ask any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to this en­quiry to con­tact po­lice via 101.”
