Family appeal to find missing Leamington man a year on

Leamington Editorial 15th Feb, 2017   0

A DEVASTATED family have ‘not given up hope’ of finding a missing Leamington man a year after his disappearance.

Sakhminder Uppal – also known as Navi – went missing on February 14 after being picked up by a taxi from his home in Freshwater Grove and dropped off near to Victoria Park.

The 42 year-old, who is around 6ft tall and of athletic build, has not been seen since.

His family have spoken out urging anyone with information to get in touch.

They said: “We haven’t given up hope and would again ask anyone who may have seen Navi to please contact police. No matter how insignificant you may think it is, any information is valuable.

“Navi is a much loved son, brother and friend and we continue to miss him terribly. At family occasions, his absence is deeply felt.

“Navi, if you see this, please get in touch, we just want to know you are safe. We all miss you and we love you.”

Investigating officer Insp Lee Crofts said: “One year on, perhaps you went to the same restaurant for Valentine’s Day or walked through the park like you did on a similarly cold night 12 months ago? If anything, even the smallest memory comes to mind then please contact police.

“I would ask the public to continue to share our appeal, please use the hashtag #HelpFindNavi on social media to spread the word to reach as many people as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or ring 00 44 1926 415000 if outside the UK.
