Hartlepool man Scott Fletcher who was aged 27 when we went missing, was reportedly last seen on May 11, 2011 at around 8.20pm near to a garage on the A181 at Wheatley Hill, Durham.

Detectives launched a murder investigation in December 2015, despite the father of one’s body not being found.

Scott’s daughter, Lucie, now 12, was just four-years-old when Scott went missing.

Scott’s mother, Julie Fletcher, still seeks answers and she has renewed her calls for anyone with information to come forward to Cleveland Police.

Julie said: “Every day is hell on earth not knowing what happened to Scott, but it is much harder at Christmas.

“It would help to bring an end to our daily nightmare if we could just find out what has happened to him and I would urge anyone with information to contact police.

“We just want to know where he is and bring him home to his family.”

“Scott’s daughter is heartbroken. She misses him greatly, as we all do, and she desperately wants her dad to come home.

“There’s not a minute that goes by that I don’t think about my son. To think that there are people who have information that won’t come forward to ease this pain is absolutely heart-breaking.”

Seven men were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. They were released without charge.

Detective Inspector Jim Allen said: “We remain determined get answers for Julie, Lucie and all of Scott’s family.

Scott’s daughter, Lucie was just four-years-old when he went missing.

“We know that there are people out there who have information about what happened to Scott and we would urge those people to speak to us and end the nightmare that Julie and all the family live through on a day to day basis, particularly at Christmas time.”

Cleveland Police’s investigation continues in order to find out exactly what happened to Scott.

Anyone with information that could help police with their inquiries is asked to call them on the non-emergency number, 101.
