A DISTRAUGHT mum says she is going through a nightmare as she gets set to spend Mother’s Day without her missing son.

Scott Fletcher has now been missing for 10 months after vanishing in May last year.

Since his disappearance, Scott’s family have continuously appealed for anyone with information on the whereabouts of the Hartlepool dad to speak to the police.

His mum, Julie Fletcher, who lives in the Bishop Cuthbert area of town, said: “The longer time goes by, the more we worry about what has happened to Scott.

“He is a loving son, father and brother and we miss him terribly. It is any parent’s nightmare to not know the whereabouts of your child.”

The 27-year-old (pictured left) was last seen at around 8.20pm on May 11 in a lay-by opposite the Jet garage on the A181 at Wheatley Hill.

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

Detective Chief Inspector Jon Green, of Hartlepool Police, said: “Although Scott’s family are understandably finding his disappearance extremely difficult to cope with, any significant dates that come up during the year, such as Mother’s Day, birthdays and Christmas, always make his disappearance especially hard for them to bear.

“The longer that Scott is missing, the more anxious we are to find him.

“It is important that anyone with information regarding Scott’s whereabouts comes forward and speaks to us. If necessary this can be done in confidence. Scott’s family need answers and I believe that someone local has those answers.”

Anyone with information regarding Scott’s whereabouts is asked to contact Det Chf Insp Green on the non-emergency 101 number or (01642) 326326.
