A SEARCH for a missing man has now moved from Epping Forest to Waltham Forest.

The hunt for Adam Connolly, 29, from Hackney, is now being conducted in Springfield Park, near Walthamstow and Leyton Marshes, after police traced his phone signal.

Dozens of friends are assisting police in the search for Mr Connolly, who went missing from his home in Hackney on Wednesday afternoon.

He was last seen wearing a burgundy jumper, dark blue jeans and a dark zip-up Carhartt jacket.

His girlfriend, Juliette Hughes, said he may have been riding his his green single speed Roberts bike, which has a wooden mudguard.

The 33-year-old said: "It's all a bit terrifying, it's nothing you ever think would happen. It's so out of character.

"We've had lots of help like Nick Grimshaw retweeting and Florence and the Machine, it's been an amazing amount of help."

Friends had originally looked in Epping Forest after seeing that Mr Connolly had searched for it online, while he and his friends often biked there.

Anyone who believes they may have seen Mr Connolly can contact Miss Hughes on 07760 228 628 or his friend and co-worker Matthew Collins on 07799 483 361.
