    UK - Andrew Green, 33, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, 22 June 2016

    Relatives of Andrew Green are calling for people to help them with a large-scale hunt on September 17 and 18.
    The 33-year-old farmer was last seen near Yew Tree Farm in Chorley, near Bridgnorth, on June 22 at about 8.50pm.
    His car was found abandoned nearby with his phone and work keys inside.

    I'm totally confused as to why family would wait until Sept 17 and 18 to organize a search.

    I'm confused where you got that idea from. They didn't wait until now to search. There was a huge search for him back in June with hundreds of volunteers, they searched 2000 acres.

    In the first article, it says the search will take place on Sept 17/18 which is 3 weeks from now.

    I'm glad to hear they searched when he fist went missing. The article I linked says they are organizing another search for Sept 17 and 18. Even if they think he is deceased it's better to find his body sooner rather than later. Evidence will be quickly deteriorating. Delaying a search 3 weeks from now does not make any sense, IMO.

    From that link:
    Mr Green, who had been going through the breakdown of a relationship, was last seen by his partner after putting his two young daughters to bed.

    His father said he saw him put a rope in his car earlier that day, but thought nothing of it at the time.

    His vehicle was later found abandoned nearby with his phone and work keys inside.

    "He's got no money, no passport," Mrs Green said.

    "He's just got a rope and a photo of his children."
    This is beyond sad. I guess they are implying he went off to hang himself but I still think it's strange to wait until Sept to search again.

    Usually such cases will be found when the leaves fall from the trees, if he has comitted suicide that is.

    The searchers are volunteers with West Mercia SAR. https://www.facebook.com/wmsar

    These people can't all drop everything and go searching this evening, they are organised and plan these kind of searches very methodically which takes time. Time to plan where to search and to give volunteers enough notice to ensure a lot of people are available to come out. They're far more likely to find him this way than a few friends and family randomly plodding through fields.

    If he has hung himself somewhere the evidence of this - a broken neck - won't be impaired by a few more weeks.

    Well I still think that's sad. If it were my loved one I would not want to wait another 3 weeks. JMO.

    If harvests are going on right now it is probably not be possible for searchers to check a large area thoroughly - they may not be able to go into a lot of fields for their own safety.

    DNA results have confirmed that a body found in woods is that of Andrew Green who went missing from near Bridgnorth last year.
