New appeal after reported sightings of missing Adam
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.
