Mother's Day plea for missing son

As Mother’s Day approaches, Julie Fletcher faces another day without her son Scott, who has been missing since May last year.
Scott Fletcher, 27,  was last seen on May 11th at around 8.20pm in the lay-by opposite the Jet garage on the A181 at Wheatley Hill in Durham. The search for him has extended to the Durham, Cumbria and Liverpool areas, as it is believed he has connections there.

Since his disappearance, Scott’s family have been distraught and have continuously appealed for anyone with information on his whereabouts to speak to the police.

Scott’s Mum, Julie Fletcher, said: “The longer time goes by, the more we worry about what has happened to Scott. He is a loving son, father and brother and we miss him terribly. It is any parent’s nightmare to not know the whereabouts of your child.”

Detective Chief Inspector Jon Green said: “Although Scott’s family are understandably finding his disappearance extremely difficult to cope with, any significant dates that come up during the year, such as Mother’s Day, birthdays and Christmas, always make his disappearance especially hard for them to bear.

“The longer that Scott is missing, the more anxious we are to find him. It is important that anyone with information regarding Scott’s whereabouts comes forward and speaks to us. If necessary this can be done in confidence. Scott’s family need answers and I believe that someone local has those answers.”

Anyone with information regarding Scott’s whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Chief Inspector Jon Green of Hartlepool Police on the non-emergency 101 number or 01642 326326.
