Search for Hackney man moves to Waltham Forest

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Adam Connolly Adam Connolly

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.

Not really our business is it? He could be depressed or gone missing for a number of reasons. The important thing is he be found safely and enough info is released to recognise him.

I can see Techno's point. in Evening Standard this evening there is a feature about missing kids, some as young as 14.

They say one goes missing every few minutes or so.

Very worrying.

Totally agree NDevoto. It's none of our business why his friends and family are concerned that he has gone missing. They say it is out of character for him to do something like this - this is enough reason.

360,000 children, young people and adults go missing every year in the UK. One third of this number are adults. Hardly one going missing every few minutes but any missing person is one too many.

Many of the issues described in the link below: "Out of character" disappearances are "high risk" , hence the urgency. 80% have mental health issues.

But let us not speculate on this particular case but hope that he will be found safe and well.
