The family of a man who has been missing for five years has reissued an appeal in hope to find answers.
Carl Hodges was aged 33 when he went missing from Northwood on February 3, 2016.
His father Eddie, mother Barbara and partner Charlotte have joined the charity Missing People to mark the fifth anniversary of his disappearance to renew the appeal for information.
In a joint statement on behalf of the family, they said: “Why and where are two frustrating questions for all in these troubled times, maybe someone can answer them with facts, however time is moving on for us all and Carl’s son needs to know answers to his inquisitive awareness.”
Mr Hodges is described as white, 6ft and of medium build. He had blonde, short, straight hair when he was last seen missing.
He was last seen wearing a black and burgundy fleece, grey trousers, a red baseball cap and white trainers, but he may have had a change of clothes with him at the time.
Missing People publicity officer, Jemima Compton, said: “Carl, if you are reading this, please call or text us on 116 000. It’s free and confidential and we can’t trace your call. We just want to provide you with the support you need and help you to be safe. The helpline is here to support people who are missing or thinking of going missing and their loved ones who are left behind.”
The charity’s helpline is operated by staff and volunteers and is free thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
If anyone has seen Carl, they should contact Missing People anonymously by calling or texting 116 000 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or they can call police on 101.
