    UK - Luke Durbin, 19, Ipswich, 2006

    www.findluke.com

    Leading up to Luke’s disappearance

    Luke went out with friends in Ipswich, Suffolk on the evening of the 11th May 2006, one of Luke’s friends decided to go home not long after arriving in Ipswich. Luke and his other friend went to the Zest Nightclub in Princes Street, Ipswich.

    The friend Luke was in Zest with went to the bar to get drinks, when he went to bring Luke his drink he could not find him. After looking for Luke in the club he thought that Luke had perhaps met a girl and left.

    Luke was seen at Ipswich train station, 5 minutes walk from Zest Nightclub, at approximately 2.30 - 3am on 12th May 2006, he was asked to leave the train station as there were no trains running at that time of night.

    Luke was next seen in Hawk Express, a taxi rank the other side of town at 3.45am, he was trying to get home but had no money on him. He was caught on the taxi rank’s CCTV, he seemed relaxed and in good spirits. After speaking to the staff at the taxi rank they said he was good mannered and perhaps a little tipsy but not drunk.

    At 4am Luke was captured on CCTV in Dog’s Head Street crossing the zebra crossing towards the bus station.

    This was the last positive sighting of Luke.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Facts
    It has been established that Luke was trying to make his way home.


    Luke was planning to pick his wages up that day – they were never touched.


    Luke’s bank account has not been touched since his disappearance.


    There has been no positive sighting of Luke since the sighting of him on CCTV at 4am on the 12th May 2006.


    The car shown in the CCTV below, captured in Orwell Place, 9 minutes after Luke was seen, heading towards the Spread Eagle Pub, away from the direction Luke was last seen in has never been identified.


    the only thing I can think of was hitchhiking, or perhaps he decided to wal home, and got hit and someone paniked and covered it up. It does not look like he left willingly.

    Luke's mum has a facebook page dedicated to information on Luke:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/4891671461/
    And also a Twitter account @findluke

    It may be a long time since Luke went missing, but there are still posters up all around the town and local area - we still want to find some answers for his family

    The most recent LE report on this (26/03/14) mentioned more tests were now being conducted on the bone. The first tests proved the bone is of human origin but other than that were sadly inconclusive.

    The BBC report does mention that Luke was known to frequent this specific area. I'm not sure how close this is to the site of disappearance though. Report also mentions that the area was once a war barracks prior to being a landfill site, obviously heightening the possibility the bone might not be linked to Durbin.

    My thoughts and best wishes go to the Durbin family, this must be a torturous wait for them. I am wishing you peace.

    Hmmm ......
    It does seem that it's probably nothing to do with Luke :

    "Initial tests on the bone suggested that it is a small piece of human bone but further detailed tests are currently being carried out to establish if the origin of the bone can be identified.

    The cordon at Ufford has since been lifted...."
