THE disappearance of a Hartlepool dad will be featured on a television crime show next week.

Cleveland Police officers will make live appeals on BBC’s Crimewatch Roadshow programme in relation to the whereabouts of town man Scott Fletcher, who was last seen on Sunday, May 11, 2011.

The 30-year-old’s case will be featured alongside a number of other investigations from the area, in appeals to the public for information to help move the inquiries forward.

Police still have no vital clues as to the whereabouts of Scott, despite following up numerous lines of inquiry, speaking with hundreds of people and visiting other areas of the country.

In December 2013, police revealed that Scott had some links to the criminal fraternity and that he was in some debt prior to his disappearance.

The BBC1 show will broadcast live from the region at 9.15am every weekday morning next week.

Broadcasting will be based in the Cleveland area on Monday, June 23, and Thursday, June 26, however, Cleveland cases will be featured most days.

Detective Chief Superintendent Darren Best, Head of Crime at Cleveland Police, said: “Crimewatch Roadshow goes out to over a million people nationally every day and so we are hopeful that we may get some new information in relation to our unsolved crimes.”

Viewers can tune into the programme on BBC1 at 9.15am Monday to Friday.
