AFRESH ap­peal for help find­ing South­port man Adam Seaton has been launched amid two re­ported sight­ings.

The Edge Hill Univer­sity stu­dent has now been miss­ing for more than six weeks and de­tec­tives are con­tin­u­ing to search for more in­for­ma­tion.

Adam went miss­ing from his home on Mel­rose Av­enue on Au­gust 9, a day be­fore his car was found parked at the RSPB car park in Marsh­side.

Po­lice, along with col­leagues from the Coast­guard and Mersey Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice, have car­ried out ex­ten­sive open land and open wa­ter searches have been car­ried out in the Sefton area and CCTV, mo­bile phone and other en­quiries have taken place.

Since his dis­ap­pear­ance, the force has re­ceived un­con­firmed sight­ings from dif­fer­ent wit­nesses who said they be­lieve they saw some­one fit­ting Adam’s de­scrip­tion around the time of his dis­ap­pear­ance.

The first was sit­ting on sand hills with a sec­ond male close to the derelict Sand Fac­tory, next to the RSPB car park in Marsh­side, in the day or so prior to him go­ing miss­ing. The sec­ond sight­ing was also with an­other male at the RSPB car park on Au­gust 9.

An­other wit­ness be­lieves that the red car Adam was driv­ing was parked up in the RSPB car park next to a small black car con­tain­ing two men, who are be­lieved to be Pol­ish and reg­u­lar vis­i­tors to the car park.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Jackie Guin­ness said: “I’d like to stress that these are all un­con­firmed sight­ings of Adam but our en­quiries re­main on­go­ing and I would ask any­one who recog­nises them­selves or be­lieves they have seen or spo­ken to Adam, or any­one fit­ting his de­scrip­tion, since Thurs­day 9th Au­gust, to con­tact us.

“I would also con­tinue to ap­peal to any­one who may have dash-cam footage which cap­tured Adam’s red Ford Fi­esta in or around the RSPB car park to come for­ward.

“It has been an ex­tremely dis­tress­ing time for Adam’s fam­ily since his dis­ap­pear­ance. They are very grate­ful to ev­ery­one who has helped in the search and pub­li­cised the ap­peals but ul­ti­mately they just want to see Adam home safe and well.

“I would ask any­one who can as­sist the in­ves­ti­ga­tion to con­tact us as a mat­ter of ur­gency.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion or who be­lieves they may have seen Adam is asked to con­tact Mersey­side Po­lice on so­cial me­dia or by call­ing 101 or to con­tact Miss­ing Peo­ple on 116 000.

Adam is de­scribed as white, 6ft 2in tall, of slim build with brown hair, pale com­plex­ion and brown eyes.

His fam­ily be­lieve he was likely to be dressed in blue or black skinny jeans and a white or black T-shirt, pos­si­bly with a bur­gundy hoodie, and wear­ing Puma train­ers.
