Published

on

Cumbria Police are continuing to search for Tom McMorrow, who has been missing since Sunday 5th January 2014.

Tom was last seen enjoying his staff party at the Inn on the Lake on the shores of Ullswater in Glenridding on Sunday night. Extensive searches involving the police and mountain rescue teams have continued. These have been undertaken in difficult weather conditions.

His family and friends are keen to hear any information that might lead to determining his whereabouts.

His parents, Mr Fergus and Mrs Eulyth McMorrow said: “Tom is a bright, personable young man. He went to Keswick School and got excellent GCSE’s and A level grades.

“He had hoped to go to University to do Medicine, but despite getting the required grades at A level, he got no offers from Medical Schools and instead chose to go on to Manchester University to study Pharmacy.

“In the end he decided that this was not the career for him and came back to Cumbria and as an interim measure decided to use his self-taught skills in cooking, a hobby he had loved from a young age, to gain employment with the George Hotel in Penrith.

“Tom was used to and well equipped for outdoor activities having a Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award, he was a strong swimmer and had a water lifesaver award and had undertaken St. John’s first Aid Courses.

“We appeal for anyone who may have seen him or knows of his whereabouts to get in touch with the police. His family and friends in Penrith, and his large extended family around the country are very worried about him. If he is hearing this directly, then we appeal for him to contact us, we just want to make sure you are safe and well.”

Inspector David Willetts, said: “We are continuing to search for Tom in the hope that we can bring him home to his family. We have spoken to people who were at the party that night and have been looking in the area for any signs of him being there.

“We are searching Lake Ullswater as a precaution and underwater search teams have been looking in the vicinity of the pier and the water’s edge.

“We appeal to members of the public to help us find Tom, anyone in the area of Glenridding who as outbuildings is asked to check for any signs of someone using them for shelter.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call Cumbria Police on 101 and speak to any officer at Penrith Police Station.
