THE devastated family of missing Hartlepool man Scott Fletcher has issued a fresh appeal for information two years after he went missing.

Scott, who will now be 29, vanished on May 11, 2011, and his family say he has left a big whole in their lives.

Detective Superintendent Jon Green, of Hartlepool Police, has led the investigation since Scott went missing two years ago.

His officers have explored numerous lines of inquiry, carried out dozens of searches and interviews and made appeal after appeal, but all have so far drawn a blank.

A fresh appeal has now been launched to coincide with the anniversary of his disappearance.

Mum Julie Fletcher, who has made several appeals for information, said: “It has been a very long two years since Scott’s disappearance and it has left a big hole in the family.

“His children miss him terribly and it is very difficult to cope not knowing where he is or what has happened to him.”

Scott is dad to Lucie, six, and stepdad to eight-year-old Bradley.

Det Supt Green added: “His family are desperate for information and just want him home.

“We are still very concerned about his whereabouts and would again appeal for anyone with information to come forward and speak to us.”

Scott, who lived in the Throston area of Hartlepool, was last seen at 8.20pm on May 11, 2011, in the lay-by opposite the Jet garage on the A181 at Wheatley Hill in Durham.

The search for Scott has extended to the Durham, Cumbria and Liverpool areas, as it is believed he has connections there.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Det Supt Green on the non-emergency number 101 or independent charity Crimestoppers anonomyously on 0800 555 111.
