    UK - Daniel Hodgin, 20, Shrewsbury, 23 November 2014

    A 20-year-old man went missing in the very early hours Sunday, after a night out with friends in Shrewsbury. He was last seen by his friends at 3am, and spoke to his mother at 5.30am, when she offered him a ride home.

    'Daniel 'Dan' Hodgin, from Madeley, Telford, was last seen at 3am on Sunday in the Shrewsbury's Buttermarket nightclub.

    Searches are being carried out by police officers and dog handlers.

    Daniel is described as 5'9", with brown hair and facial stubble, and was last seen wearing a grey polo top, dark jeans and black boots.'

    His disappearance is said to be very out of character and anyone who has seen him is asked to call police on 101.

    Daniel's sister has been making desperate and heartbreaking tweets for help since yesterday, but I've only just now found a media story to post his disappearance here. There doesn't seem to be much media interest, but hopefully Dan's missing status is being shared on Facebook. I'm not on it, so don't know.

    I think this photo may be more accurate to how Dan looked the night he disappeared. I think the previous one I posted may be a wedding pic or something like that.

    I wonder if Dan's mum managed to find out his location, when she spoke to him at 5.30am?

    I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but I think there is at least a possibility Dan had been drinking. There has been some bad weather in the UK recently, so it is very worrying that Dan hasn't made contact yet.

    I would also like to know if Dan was due to go to work or college today. If not, it's a little more hopeful he's just stayed over at a friend's, perhaps.

    Gosh he lives about 5 minute drive from me. I haven't heard anything about this which is unusual. When Georgina Williams (RIP) went missing we all knew about it within hours (her father was quite high up in the police though), maybe that was because she was female.

    I'll look out for some information, see if any of my students at work know of him.

    I know. I've been watching his family trying to get word out with very little response from media, which was so sad. I couldn't even post his status here without a media story. Do let us know if there has been more interest on Facebook, if you're on it.

    I've seen nothing on social media other than Kimster's Twitter link to our thread here.

    Dan's still not been found but the UK's national missing people organisation has reached out, so hopefully Dan will be featured on their site soon. It has email and phone tips lines and wide coverage, which is very helpful.

    I guess it's looking much less likely Dan is just at a friend's house now. I don't know if there have been any searches for him.

    SAR diver teams have been out, searching the nearby River Severn, close to the club where Dan disappeared from. It's very sad but it needs to be done because it simply happens so often that people who disappear after a night out, end up in water if there is any nearby.

    Police are also asking everyone to search their outbuildings and sheds in case (I guess) Dan took shelter, fell asleep and was affected by hypothermia. I don't know how cold it was in the UK that night though. Very sad for Dan and his loved ones that he has not been found yet.

    Extracts from police media release with family appeal for help.

    '...Daniel’s mum, Lorraine reported her son missing, in the early hours of Sunday morning, after he failed to return home after a night out in Shrewsbury Town Centre. She last spoke to him at 5.30am, when she called to offer him a lift home.

    Lorraine said: “He said he would walk home although he was unsure where he was, so we drove to Shrewsbury anyway but could not find him.”

    “We are devastated as any parent would be who did not know where their son was. As a family we have been in and around Shrewsbury searching day and night, we have given out leaflets asking for anyone to come forward with any information as to his whereabouts or the location of any of his possessions.”

    ....Please check your gardens, sheds, garages or other outbuildings as a matter of urgency in case he has sought shelter from the cold. We are focusing our enquiries at this time within approximately 1 mile of the Buttermarket”

    “We are carrying out extensive searches in the Shrewsbury area to locate Daniel. These involve using police dogs, the police helicopter and boats to search the river area. We are often reliant on the help and support of the public to assist us and urge anyone with any information to contact us”.

    Anyone who believes they may have seen Daniel or who has any information to assist with the investigation is urged to contact police on 101 quoting incident 258 of 23rd November. '

    Police will be questioning clubbers at the Buttermarket tomorrow and Saturday, asking if anyone remembers seeing Daniel. They are also appealing for people to lok out for his possessions, including his phone.

    No real updates. My heart is with Dan and his family.
