    UK - Kieron Knowlden, 25, Tonbridge, 1 March 2014

    Kieron Knowlden 25, has been missing since a night out Friday when he went to Mojos bar in Bardon Rd, Tonbridge, Kent. He was last seen leaving the bar on cctv at 1.30am Saturday, March 1st and turning left towards his Forest Grove home. He never made it. His route home goes over the River Medway.

    No weight or height is given, but police say Kieron was wearing a black coat, blue tee, blue jeans and blue and white trainers.

    Kieron's family are desperate to find him and his mother is in torment - she feels he must have died.

    Anyone with anyone with information, please call Tonbridge police on 101,
    quoting 01 1249

    Oh dear. This new article quotes someone refuting family's claim this is totally out of character:

    "I remember him kidnapping his son and running off, causing police involvement'

    http://www.courier.co.uk/Family-miss...ail/story.html

    Out of character or not, I think Kieron may well have had an accident on the way home, he is missing and his family needs to find him. They are searching the streets today. I wish them all the best. I hope police can arrange some searches of the River Medway too.

    Kieron on the night he went missing. He has a very distinctive haircut, shaved at the sides, long on top.

    And here's the help find Kieron FB page

    The search by family, friends and other volunteers this morning has not found anything. I think they may still be searching though. They are checking the riverbanks, I believe.

    I would have thought police would have managed to get a last phone ping by now. I'm not seeing anything about that though. I'm sure Kieron must have had one.

    This is right on my doorstop.

    I have seen this guy around Tonbridge (I work there) and we have mutual friends. From what I have read this is completely out of character. If I remember right he didn't return his son when he was supposed to and kept hold of him for a few days. Police were involved but he has paternal rights so nothing they could do and he returned him a few days later. The boys mother is pregnant with his 2nd child. He is in a relationship with a different girl now.

    The police are searching the river tomorrow morning and I think that's where they are likely to find him

    Thank you, Gem 2626! It is great to have some local input here.

    I am very, very concerned about Kieron. And heartbroken for his loved ones, especially his mum and his brother. It broke my heart, reading about his brother saying he had to step up and be strong for the rest of the family.

    I think I have to make a map. Hopefully, someone will come on to the thread who can do the street views. The clues lay in Kieron's route home, I'm sure.

    This is where Kieron should have crossed the river, on his way along High St, across the river, to his home in Forest grove. His home was about 2 miles away from the bar - long walk, at that time of night. Was that usual for him?

    I can't see where the River Medway is easily accessible on the near side, but on the far side there seems to be a flat area on the left. Could Kieron have snuck off there for a pee, and fallen in the water?

    I'm mistaken. There is a river walk on the near side. I hope it doesn't have steps leading down from the bridge into the water.

    There is no reason for Kieron to have gone down there when he was on his way home, but I can't help thinking of all the cases here of people who were drinking, then for some reason, went near water and never came home.

    "Police sonar team to search Tonbridge river for missing man tomorrow"

    Thank heavens. About time too. I will be thinking of Kieron's loved ones tonight. This must be such an horrendous time for them. I'm thinking about his little one too - who has lost their daddy.

    Right, i'm no good with technology and I am sooooo tired tonight but i'll try and explain the area. Tonbridge town centre is on a straight road behind the shops on each side is the river. There are 2 bridges on the town centre strip where you can see the river on either side of the road.

    On the left hand side (the side the bar was on that Kieron was in and about a minute away) there is a side road that leads round to the back of the shops. There are shop car parks and some offices and a nightclub and also to where a large kids park is, and a swimming pool . The pathway follows the river all the way round. I have to admit I haven't walked around this area for quite a while but there is a couple of exits he could have made to come back onto the town centre. The last exit being at the other end of the town centre where the castle is.

    This walk in total would take maybe 10 mins. I can see him taking this route. Infact if he did just walk straight through the town centre then there would be cctv of him someone.

    This area of Tonbridge has been really badly flooded over the last couple of months and only very recently has the water gone down. There are signs in the kids playground warning people not to use the equipment until it has been cleaned. The town centre road is closed to traffic from Monday for the next 3 weeks so they can work on the bridge so that this level of flooding does not happen again (google Tonbridge flooding pictures)

    As this area has been pretty much a no go area for the last couple of months and the flooding has been the talk of the town it's very possible that he wanted to walk that way just to have a look. It's also possible that he realised he needed the toilet, popped down the side road and just carried on walking that way.

    If you walk through the town centre then on the right hand side of the road bridge there are steps so you can walk down, however, the bar was on the left hand side of the road, his road is on the left hand side of the road he didn't have much reason to cross the road.
    At the end of the town centre on the left (where the castle) is you can walk right up to the water so it's possible that he walked through the town centre and then went to the river at this end. Where is the cctv though?

    I'm assuming his family have contacted the local taxi companies. If he decided to get a taxi instead of walk then he would have gone out of the bar in the other direction to the train station and got a taxi from there. His friends he was out with seem sure he walked. It is a fair walk.

    I hope this makes some sense

    Ahhh just seen your pic. on the other side of the river from where it's marked river walk is where the castle is. from the bridge the ground slopes down so you can get right up close to this river. If Kieron took the side road near the pub then he could have walked in a C shape and walked along river walk back in to the town centre.
