Scott Fletcher may have come to some harm

Police say possibility that missing man Scott Fletcher has come to some harm

Police investigating the disappearance of Hartlepool man Scott Fletcher say that they are open minded to the possibility that he may have come to some harm.

Since he disappeared on May 11th 2011, police and Scott’s family have continued to appeal for information from members of the public, and while some calls were received, there was nothing of significance to lead them to his whereabouts.

Officers have spoken to around 300 people as part of the case and have visited a number of areas, including Liverpool, Cumbria and Durham where Scott has links.

Mystery still surrounds the Wednesday evening when a man believed to be Scott was last seen in the lay-by opposite the Jet garage on the A181 at Wheatley Hill in Durham.

Superintendent Jon Green, who is leading on the investigation, said: “While there is no information to say that he has come to some harm, there are certain aspects of his life that would lead us to believe that it’s a possibility.

“Scott was in some debt prior to his disappearance and was known to the criminal fraternity. We believe people may be withholding information from us because they don’t want to be seen to be disloyal to Scott, or because they are protecting someone else.

“It’s another Christmas for Scott’s family without him. They are in agony with no information as to what has happened to him. His family support us in giving this information about Scott in a bid to urge people to come forward.

“I want to assure people that this case is very much open and that we will investigate information that comes in.”

Scott’s devastated mum Julie Fletcher said: “I can’t explain the torture of not knowing where my son is. It’s like a dark cloud over us, we don’t know whether we will get a phone call to say something terrible has happened to him, or he will come walking through the door.

“He just wouldn’t leave us like this; his daughter Lucie and stepson Bradley miss him terribly. I know Scott made some poor choices but he is still my son and I need to know what has happened to him, or get him home where he belongs.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
