DETECTIVES in Southport continue to appeal for the public's help in tracing a man who has been missing from the Churchtown area since New Years Eve.

34 year old Sales Manager Adam Whitehurst was last seen by his wife at around 10am on New Year’s Eve (Wednesday, December 31).

The News UK employee, who works in Manchester but also has links to Cheshire and London, is described as white, about 6ft 1 inch tall and has short straight brown hair, a slight stubble and blue eyes.

He was last seen wearing a dark grey thick North Face jacket with a hood, dark grey/blue tracksuit bottoms and brown loafer shoes.

He was riding a red mountain bike. Adam is known to frequent the Southport, Cheshire and Manchester area.

Adam, has now not been seen for six days and his family and friends are growing increasingly concerned for his safety.

Detectives from Merseyside Police say they are doing all they can in the search and are carrying out ‘extensive' inquiries but have yet to confirm any sightings.

His colleague, Wayne Thorpe, said: “Everybody is desperately worried by our colleague Adam.

”Our colleagues in News UK are trying to raise awareness and Adam's disappearance has been mentioned in the nationals and also on regional TV news.“

Adam's friends and fellow News UK employees have taken to social media to try and raise awareness of his dissapearence.

His friend Claire Kearney said: ”My friend Adam is still missing from his home.

“We want you found safe and well - I'm very worried for him.”

A spokesperson for UK based charity Missing People added a direct message to Adam, saying: “Adam we are here for you whenever you are ready; we can listen, talk you through what help you need, pass a message for you and help you to be safe.”

Police are becoming increasingly concerned about Adam's whereabouts and would urge anyone who knows where Adam is, or has seen a man resembling him, to contact Merseyside Police on 0151 934 4556, the police non-emergency number on 101 or the Missing People Charity on 116 000.
