POLICE have made a fresh appeal for information following the disappearance of a golfer who has not been seen for more than two weeks.

Several appeals have now been issued to help find Peter Jackson (pictured), the 38-year-old Castle Eden Golf Club pro who has been missing since leaving his home at 8.20pm on November 11.

Durham Police have found the dad-of-two’s grey Ford Focus C-Max car, in Haltwhistle, near Hexham.

Police divers have also spend several days searching a lake at a quarry near to where his car was found.

A Durham Police spokesman said: “The searches have been ongoing in the area and we are continuing to appeal for anyone who may have seen Peter or his car to contact us.”

The Star reported last week how his wife Alexis made a plea for the dad-of-two to return home, while well-wishers appealed for him to get in touch.

The 36-year-old nanny, of Seaham, said: “There is nothing at all for him to worry about at home or at work, we all just want him back with us as soon as possible or at the very least know that he is ok.

“He loves his boys so much and they are missing him desperately.

“They want to know where their daddy is, and it’s devastating not to be able to give them an answer.”

Castle Eden’s club secretary Steve Watkins said previously that they “are supporting police with their appeal”.

Clifford Jackson, the pro golfer at Seaton Carew Golf Club, added: “I have only played with him a few times over the last few years but my experience of him is he is just a nice gentle giant and a very warm, outgoing type of guy.”

Anyone with information should call the Northumbria or Durham Police on 101.
