Could a man missing from Milton Keynes be in Preston?


Thames Valley Police have released information about the last known movements of Gary Williams, 43, who has been missing since Friday 20 March.

They say they received a phone call with a possible sighting of Mr Williams saying he had been seen in Preston.

Detective Chief Inspector Vince Grey, from Local Area CID in Milton Keynes, said: “We are very concerned about Gary, as he has been missing for nearly a fortnight.

“We received a call from a woman several days ago, which we believe was made from Preston, in Lancashire, reporting an unverified sighting of Gary however I would urge this person to call police back via 101 as we would like to speak to her again.

“If anyone else has any information or has seen anyone matching the description of Mr Williams please call police as soon as possible as his family are extremely worried about him.”

Mr Williams was last seen at a Travel Lodge in Shenley Church End.

He lives in Dorset and is described as white, slim, 6ft, with grey-black hair which is thin on top and longer at the sides.

Mr Williams was last seen wearing black shoes, black trousers and a black zip-up cardigan.

He is believed to have been carrying a duffle bag, which was green.

Thames Valley Police say Mr Williams had been on a night out with work colleagues at Pink Punters, an LGBT bar, in Watling Street, Milton Keynes.

He left the club at 2.24am with a colleague and was seen getting a taxi from a BP garage in Fenn Stratford, Bletchley at 2.56am.

Mr Williams and the colleague arrived at the Travel Lodge and both men went to their separate rooms.

At 3.51am Mr Williams is seen on CCTV leaving the hotel alone.

Anyone with information about Gary’s whereabouts is asked to contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101 quoting URN 862 20/3.
