Possible sighting of missing dad

POLICE are investigating a possible sighting of missing man Darren Waller who vanished more than two weeks ago.

Detectives are studying CCTV footage and making inquiries after receiving a report that the dad of three was spotted walking along York Road, in Hartlepool.

But Detective Inspector Anne-Marie Salwey, of Hartlepool CID, said it is yet to be confirmed that it was definitely Darren.

Det Insp Salwey said: "We are looking into a reported sighting of Mr Waller either on January 19 or January 20, between 3.30pm and 4pm, in the York Road area of the town.

"He was said to be near the library and the Tesco store around those times.

"There is a touch of caution as this sighting has not been corroborated and we are still looking at CCTV and making inquiries.

"We would urge anyone who was in the area at that time and who think they saw Mr Waller to get in touch."
