Officers involved in efforts to trace a missing 44-year-old man from Kesgrave are issuing a picture of a watch that he was believed to have been wearing at the time.
Paul Moore was last seen at around 4pm on Tuesday 6 February in the Nacton village area and was reported as missing to police two days later on Thursday 8 February. Since then officers have undertaken a number of enquires to locate him.
Police understand that Paul was wearing an Omega brand watch when he went missing which may have become lost or been mislaid subsequently. The watch is described as an Omega Seamaster Chronograph professional model with a black dial steel case and bracelet bearing the serial number is 86673098. Officers are asking that anybody who may have seen the watch or been offered it for sale, or who has any information to contact them as a priority.
Extensive searches for Paul were undertaken at the weekend (24/25 February) encompassing the Nacton foreshore area and some nearby wooded areas, and also sections of Orwell Country Park. Officers were assisted by Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue and HM Coastguard. Police have been continuing searches this week.
Enquiries are on-going to establish his last known movements. Whilst it remains a missing person enquiry, the Major Investigation Team is now supervising the investigation and are working to establish the circumstances around Paul’s disappearance.
Paul was wearing white trainers, grey jogging bottoms and a distinctive Dolce & Gabbana grey hooded top with pink flowers when he was last seen. Paul is described as white, 6ft tall, of stocky build and with mousy hair.
Police and family members remain concerned for Paul’s welfare. Officers are also appealing for any members of the public who may have been in and around the car park areas of the Shore Lane or Orwell Country Park on Tuesday 6 February to get in touch.
A man in his thirties from the Ipswich area who was arrested on Sunday 25 February, in connection with the inquiry has now been released under investigation whilst police enquires continue.
Anyone with information regarding Paul’s whereabouts or who has information regarding the watch is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101. Alternatively contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
