    UK - George Ford, 20, Stroud, Gloucestershire, 16 Dec 2012

    http://www.nottinghamshire.police.uk...medium=twitter

    George Ford is believed to have left his home in Slad Road at around 3am on Sunday 16 December.

    The 20-year-old is white, around 6ft 1ins tall, with brown, wavy shoulder length hair.

    He was last seen wearing a green t-shirt with ‘Hitchhike Morocco’ on the front, grey combat trousers, a brown satchel bag and black DC trainers with blue detail.

    This is concerning. Where would a young guy go on foot at 3am on Sunday morning?
    Isn't it a little to late to go out for the night? Or have I just forgotten what time we went out at that age?
    Has he had an argument with someone and just went for a walk to clear his head and never came back?
    Did he left his home just to buy something in some night shop or something? It's that even possible there at that hour?
    Was he sober? Was he drinking or under the influence of something?
    Is he an otherwise healthy young guy or needs/takes some kind of medications?

    Is it normal LE asking if spotted to say the tip is about "incident 175"? Was there an incident or is that just the NR of the case? In case is the latter why would't be enough to say I spotted the missing NU student? Are there so many missing? (For the record I don't believe this, but I find it strange)
    So many questions.

    Some little more detail would be helpful.

    ETA: I hope he is not just wearing a T-shirt outside this time of the year.

    From Summer Breeze's article;

    A laptop and one shoe belonging to George was found in bushes near his home, the SNJ understands.
    Oh, that's not good...

    does George live on campus... Or with his family?

    I am still worried that there are bodies of water near there... I am off to check!

    Is anyone good with posting maps?

    sorry... I would... But I am not map posting literate...

    TIA

    George is a student at the Uni of Nottingham, but he's gone home to Stroud for Christmas.

    Slad road is long, going from the town centre, which is mostly residential, to quite rural.

    Thank you so much for these maps!

    So George is home for the holidays...

    He must have friends near his parents house then... I wonder if he was meeting up with a friend?

    He left home at 3:00 a.m..... And was seen at Strouds Town Centre at 5:00a.m.

    I wonder who saw him at 3:00 in the morning.... Parents... Siblings... Friends staying with him?

    And I wonder who saw him at the Town Centre at 5:00 a.m.? surveillance cams?

    How far is his home from Nottingham University?

    TIA

    Google maps says that the distance from Nottingham to Stroud is 120 miles, about 2hrs 15 mins.

    This doesn't sound good at all. Nobody would deliberately walk around/away just in one shoe for such a long time... IMO
