    UK - Colin Morton, 52, Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, 24 Dec 2012

    Fears for financial manager missing since Christmas Eve after he was sacked from his job for paperwork blunder (Daily Mail)
    Fears are growing for the welfare of a man who went missing on Christmas Eve, days after he was sacked from his job.

    Colin Morton, 52, failed to return to his home in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, after a doctor's appointment on Monday morning.

    Police today said they were hoping to speak to a man who was seen walking into the sea at 10am that day.

    His partner of 34 years Liz Callighan, has told how Mr Morton was left devastated after losing the career he loved at a building society just five days before his disappearance.
    ---
    Miss Callighan, 52, said: 'Up until five weeks ago Colin was a very chatty, sociable, friendly person. He would talk to anybody.

    'But when he was dismissed I saw a huge change in him. He was absolutely devastated. His career was a huge part of his life.'

    "Police today said they were hoping to speak to a man who was seen walking into the sea at 10am that day."

    That certainly doesn't sound very good. The water there would be frigid this time of year. If someone saw him walking into the ocean, I wonder why they didn't try to stop him or at least talk to him.

    From the article: "Superintendent Peter Farrell said: 'We need to establish whether this was someone walking into the sea for a dip so we can eliminate this possible sighting from our enquiries."

    Current temperature of Whitley Bay is approximately 7C or 44F. Seems unlikely anyone would be taking "a dip" in that water.

    Yes, when I came to the "walking into the sea" paragraph in the Mail article, that didn't sound good.

    Hoping he walked into the sea and then walked right back out. Doubting it, but maybe.
