    UK - Robbie Oversby, 18, Gateshead, 17 September 2015


    He's been missing since Thursday. Totally out of character.

    How sad, googling this case took me to this page which made me notice how many are missing in the UK too https://www.facebook.com/www.missing...intheuk?_rdr=p

    Anyway, back on topic, this kid appears to have 3 different FB profiles

    1. https://www.facebook.com/robbie.oversby.1 (locked down)
    2. https://www.facebook.com/robbie.oversby?ref=br_rs (locked down)
    3. https://www.facebook.com/roversby?ref=br_rs (open but not updated since 31/05/15)

    Looks like Trinity Square is a shopping complex with a multi-storey-carpark. Can't find any articles about Robbie today. Scarily there's an article about someone being hit by a train this evening - sad for whoever is left behind & hopefully not relevant to this case.

    I live near here and strangly was there doing shopping on Thursday. I havent heard about Robbie until now.
    Trinity Square is a large complex. It has a large car park in the basement floor, a supermarket, cinema, restaurants, gyms, shops and cafes on the first floor and offices and student accomodation on the many floors above (almost 1000 student flats). It is huge and basically the new town centre for Gateshead.
    At one end is Gateshead Interchange (bus station) and the other is the A167 the main road.
    We have a mutual friend on facebook (my 19 yr old stepdaughter) but she has also not heard anything and there are no posts on Robbies page from friends asking him to contact them... odd?

    I have seen several friends share his missing post. I hope he's ok. Weather is miserable in Newcastle today. Cold and raining.

    I've seen a fair few shares on Facebook. There doesn't seem to be any new information though.

    Where on earth has this young lad gone? There is CCTV all over Gateshead town centre. Police must be able to see what direction he headed off in, surely?

    I saw this on facebook and popped over to see if there was a thread.

    It's odd that there's been no sightings at all and the description of the clothes (wearing shorts) wouldn't be suitable for being outside for days in the weather we have had recently. I don't have a good feeling about this at all, tortured young muso is a bit of a cliche, I hope I'm wrong

    I hate to say it but I'm thinking he is in the Tyne.

    This isn't good news

    "Around that same time we received two reports from people who had seen a person fall from the bridge. Searches of the River Tyne were carried out and are still ongoing and as yet a body has not yet been recovered.

    Although we can not be definitely sure that the person who is thought to have fallen from the bridge is Robbie, we are not ruling out this possibility and his family has been informed."

    Sadly our fears about Robbie having fallen in the Tyne look like they might be true.

    What an awful time for his friends and family

    The Redheugh bridge is very high, and very long. If he's fallen or jumped from that bridge then he won't have survived. No chance.

    His mam is desperate for information. Poor woman. I can't imagine her pain. It's not warm in Newcastle at the moment and he'll be cold just wearing a light jacket and shorts. I hope he's just holed up at a friend's house but it's scary that no-one has heard from him. I hope he's not in the river.
