ALIVE AND LIVING IN SHREWBURY ?
One of the strangest details regarding the case was that in November 2008, just over a year after Andrew had gone missing, an unknown man visited Leominster police station in Herefordshire, West Midlands, and asked to speak to a police officer, using the intercom to do so. It was the evening and the reception wasn’t staffed at that time. The man, who refused to share his identity, said he had information about Andrew. By the time an officer had arrived to take details, the man had departed.
Leominster police station is located on a business park, it isn’t a location you pass by without intending to visit it. West Mercia Police appealed for the man to come forward again, but there was no further contact. That is, until Andrew’s case was featured on the BBC’s The
One Show in December, when a man purporting to be the person who’d approached the police in Leominster the previous month got in touch with police. In doing so, he gave details concerning a possible sighting on Andrew in Shrewsbury, in November 2008.
