Anniversary appeal to help trace missing Linslade man

Have your say

Leighton Buzzard police officers investigating the disappearance of a missing man from Linslade say they will leave “no stone unturned in the search for Neil Devlin”.

This follows the announcement that the force will be out in Leighton-Linslade this evening on the three-week anniversary since he was last seen leaving a friend’s house in Falcon Mews to walk home to Town Bridge Mill.

Detective Inspector Zara Brown, who is leading the search for Neil, said: “Our investigations are continuing to trace Neil and it is hoped that the anniversary appeal could spark a memory that may help progress this investigation.

“On Thursday (Jan 23) specialist search officers and divers from the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service will also be in the area to undertake further searches of the river bank and the river itself.

“This behaviour is totally out of character for Neil and as time passes our concern for his wellbeing is growing. I would urge anyone who can help trace Neil to contact the police urgently to enable us to make sure he is safe and well.”

Neil is described as a white man with mild learning difficulties, 5’2” to 5’5” tall, with a small/slim build, short ginger hair and a pale complexion. He was last seen wearing a dark anorak style jacket with a hood, a dark top and jeans.

Anyone who has seen Neil or has information about his whereabouts should contact Bedfordshire Police on 101.
