Luke Durbin: Police issue fresh appeal over missing Suffolk man

Police searching for a man who disappeared more than five years ago have renewed house-to-house inquiries.

Luke Durbin, from Hollesley, Suffolk, was 19 when he went missing after a night out in Ipswich in 2006.

Detectives have reviewed the case and have now focused their inquiries on Ipswich town centre and Woodbridge.

Det Ch Insp John Brocklebank said: "I want to be confident and assured that we have covered all bases."

The last confirmed sighting of Mr Durbin was captured on CCTV in Dog's Head Street, Ipswich at 04:00 BST on 12 May 2006.

Officers have also received reports he was spotted in a dark blue Renault Megane near to the Turban Centre, in Quay Side, Woodbridge between 11:00 BST and 14:00 BST the next day.

Police officers will now revisit the two areas to speak to residents.

Mr Brocklebank said: "Five years is a long time but often people don't come forward as they feel that the information they have is not relevant.

"We would rather have the details and follow it through. Often it is the smallest piece of information that can give us a breakthrough."
