Renewed Appeal on Anniversary of Whitby Man's Disappearance

Renewed Appeal on Anniversary of Whitby Man's Disappearance

Published by Jon Burke at 6:31am 8th May 2020.

It's a year today since a 47 year-old man from Whitby went missing.

47 year-old Pete Brown was last seen, in Scarborough, on the 8th of May 2019.

Since then, there have been several appeals and lots of publicity from his family and friends aimed at finding him.

They're asking anyone who think they may have seen Pete to take a photo of him, just to confirm whether or not it is him.

His 18 year-old son, Jayden, says he he's around 6 foot 2 inches tall and has a tattoo of a Cancer birth sign on his wrist.

Jayden said:

"It's been incredibly difficult. Every second is losing a second you could've been spending with your dad, especially as big dates come by - and now it's a year, you just feel like 'am I going to be forced to live through that again?' 

Every big birthday, or when it was coming up to Christmas, we're always thinking 'he has to turn up before this, he has to turn up before that'.

We would love a picture. If you can get a picture, that would be really important, so we can rule out whether it is him or not.

If he does see this, he's not done anything wrong. He has not abandoned us at all. He's done nothing wrong and we all love him. We just need him to come home."

Jayden's been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke..

Police say if you do think you've seen Peter, you should contact them in 101 and you can submit any photo, if you have one, once you've done that.

Senior Operational Commander for Scarborough, Superintendent Andrea Kell, said:

"Peter went missing in Scarborough a year ago on Wednesday 8 May 2019.

Sadly, despite extensive searches carried out with the support of both Search and Rescue specialist teams and the National Police Air Service and the support and response from the public, Peter still remains missing.

Numerous sightings, some as far away as Scotland, have been reported to police and extensive enquiries have been made to each report, with some still ongoing. However, to date, no reliable evidence of his current whereabouts has been found.

Until we know where Peter is, our missing person investigation will remain open and any new information or sightings reported to us will be fully investigated. Anyone with information which could assist our investigation is asked to contact police on 101 and quote reference 12190083137."

On behalf of North Yorkshire Police, I’d like to send our thought’s to Peter’s family at what must be a very difficult time for them and thank them for their assistance with our enquiries.”
