    UK - John Ankers, 28, Woodchurch, Wirral, 20 Jan 2013

    Search continues for missing Wirral man John Ankers (Liverpool Echo)
    Friends and family of a man who went missing from home after finding out he would lose his job are continuing the search for him.

    John Ankers has not been seen since Sunday morning, when he left his mum-in-law’s house in Woodchurch, Wirral, to go to work.

    The 28-year-old had been told days before that he faced being made redundant after the collapse of DVD rental firm Blockbuster.

    Search organiser and close friend Brian Granby said: “We have had people out looking for John everywhere but have not had any joy so far.

    “We’re been using Twitter and Facebook to raise awareness and the response we have had has been overwhelming.'

    Mr Akers is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall of medium build with short, straight dark brown hair. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, white Ralph Lauren polo shirt, skinny blue jeans and black Vans trainers with white soles.
    ---
    Ms Williams, 27, who married Mr Ankers in a white wedding last September after the couple had been dating for eight years, said she was 'desperate' to see her husband again.

    'We're just desperate for John to come home safe,' she said today. 'Nobody has heard from him or seen him since he set off work and we are fraught with worry - especially with the wintry weather.

    'I have spoken to everyone who knows him and he hasn't been in touch with anyone.'

    She added: 'John's a very happy person - really easy-going. Everybody is his friend and everyone loves him. That's why so many people have been looking for him.'

    A body has been found in the hunt for a young man who went missing after he lost his job at Blockbuster, hours after his wife launched an emotional appeal begging him to come home.
    Seems FB is correct
