    Joseph Shann, 35 (then) went missing after leaving his sister's home in Ecclesbury Street, East End Park, Leeds, to buy christmas presents on Dec 10th, 2010. He had withdrawn £100 (about $164) from his bank account. He was meeting up with friends.

    Joseph hasn't been seen since and his accounts have had no activity. His family are desperate to bring him home.

    Two men were arrested on suspicion of murdering Joseph in August 2012 but were later released on bail. Joseph's case was highlighted today in a Leeds City centre shopping mall by the non profit Missing People organisation. Police also appealed again for any information.

    Here is some information I have found. Unfortunately, there's no clothing description or further details about the circumstances of Joseph's disappearance. He has a tattoo 'JS' on his right shoulder. There's also some discrepancy with his missing date - the 8th or 10th? I've gone with the 10th.

    Please, anyone with any information call these anonymous tip lines
    Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

    I haven't been able to get much idea of where Joseph might be. But someone out there knows for certain.

    It is time someone did the right thing. It is much harder to make a deal with prosecutors once a body has been found. Just saying.

    I,m new at this so please keep me right.
    Could,nt find much out but a few things.
    Joseph had been staying with his sister until 10th? Why as he'd had his own multi storey flat? issues there?.Joseph had previously taken heroin, was he safer at his sisters.

    Stated that parents saw lights on in his flat over Christmas, but didn't,t report
    Joseph missing until after Christmas no date specified.
    Did Joseph go back to his flat after the night out?. Police broke the door down to
    His flat after Christmas, lights were on.
    He has a tatoo on his R shoulder JS.
    Sister didn't,report him missing although he had been staying with her

    Joseph was known to big issue sellers? had he been homeless at some time?
    Just a few thoughts.

    2 men were arrested in May 2012, and again in April 2013 and charged with murder, let out on bail, not enough evidence.

    Thanks and welcome Finlaggan.

    It sounds like police really need to find Joseph's body in order to bring a prosecution and have strong reason to believe he is deceased.

    It does seem Joseph had an unstable lifestyle which led to him not being reported missing straight away. It made him vulnerable. I despise people who target the vulnerable.

    Joseph is out there somewhere. I wonder where?

    What is wrong with me? If Joseph went missing in 2010 at 35 that does not make him 37 now, but that's what I've put in the thread title.

    Give me a number and I'll mess it up. :(
