UK - Casper Flagg, 28, Bath, England, 28 Nov 2009
Caper went missing at some point overnight on the 28th/29th of November, there is CCTV footage of him leaving Moles Nightclub in Bath city centre and heading towards a burger van. He didn't return to his car, it has been recovered by police. It is said that he had no house keys, car keys, phone or credit cards on him.
He was reported missing after he didn't turn up to his mother's birthday lunch the next day, and friends hadn't seen him.

Now on the BBC website, not much to update.
Someone on the facebook group says that Moles nightclub have reviewed their CCTV and he was seen finally leaving the club at 4.06am, so this means he returned to the club after he went to the takeaway van.
Link to the facebook group:
Absolutely awstruck by the amount of support and genoristy people are showing! Just amazing! Routing for this young chap to be home safe and sound for Christmas!

Another, very small update, it is now said Capser was sighted at a Sainsburys Local (convienience store) not far from the nightclub at approximate 4.45-4.50 am. There is a taxi rank just down from here, but Casper had no money for a taxi.
Also it is known that Casper is a smoker and may have asked people for a cigarette/light.

Yet another story of a young man leaving a bar/nightclub and disappearing into the night. I know a lot of people are attributing these disappearances (and later confirmed drownings) to be the work of a group of serial killers (in the U.S. anyway) but I really think these young people are leaving the bars severely intoxicated/not in their right mind, which results in accidents, including a lot of drownings. Rarely do you hear of a young woman leaving a bar alone, because women realize there is danger in being a lone, impaired female; I think many of these young men feel because they are male they don't have to adhere to the buddy system, they don't see themselves as likely targets. But it's just not true. People need to realize how vulnerable they are, male or female, when alone, late at night, in transit, and inebriated.

I agree with you Mia, whenever i'm out with the girls we have an unspoken rule that nobody goes off on their own, even to the loo, and we don't let anybody go off on their own either. No matter what they say. I also see a LOT of men walking home on their own etc.
What I'm not quite understanding in Casper's case is, seeing as he was due to be staying at a friends house, why did that friend leave without him?
Also just found another article on BBC News, his parents and friends are going to Moles nightclub tonight (a week on) to appeal to clubbers for information.

Death of graphic designer who fell into river remains a mystery
A leading pathologist said he suspected the death of a graphic designer who fell into the River Avon after a night out in Bath was most likely an accident, but he could not rule out foul play.
An inquest heard Casper Flagg had tried to get into his friend's flat shortly before walking off towards the water, but as the doorbell had been disabled he was not heard.
Mr Flagg, of Radstock, disappeared after a night out in Moles nightclub. He was due to be staying with his friend Mathew Eggleston in Monmouth Street.
When he could not get an answer, Mr Flagg, 28, walked towards Green Park Mews where he had left his car.
But the inquest heard mystery continues to surround the sequence of events that saw the Bath Spa graduate's body end up in the River Avon.
Speaking at the inquest, Home Office pathologist Dr Basil Purdue said he could draw little conclusion from the evidence which he had and said he could not rule out foul play. However, he said from his experience he did not think this was the case and thought it more likely Mr Flagg ended up in the water accidentally.
