    Michael Lee went missing two years ago. He was reported missing by members of his family on 16th March 2011 after having not been heard from since 6th March 2011.

    He and his car are both missing and have never been found.

    Mr Lee had cancelled his newspaper deliveries, called his sister-in-law and cancelled a hair appointment on the morning of 6th March, so it looks like he planned to leave, but it is unclear in the media appeals, whether he took any of his possessions with him.

    Since his family have no idea what has happened to him, I expect that this means that he isn't using his bank account.

    The Lee family have a furniture business that is very well known and prominent in the area, and Michael Lee had recently taken semi-retirement from the business.

    His car is a dark blue Mercedes C220, registration K004 HTP and this is a picture of his car http://www.lincs.police.uk/News-Centre/Missing-Persons/LEE-Michael-Merc1-.JPG

    This is a picture from the front of a car that is exactly the same as Mr Lee's car http://www.lincs.police.uk/News-Centre/Missing-Persons/LEE-Michael-Merc-2-.JPG

    Here is Michael Lee's missing persons page including a photo of him (please note, they have got the first letter of his car registration incorrect in this report) - https://www.missingpeople.org.uk/michaellee

    I live a few miles from Grimsby, so this case is quite close to home for me. Is there anything I/we can do to help Oh Wise Websleuthers? I am new to this.

    No leads, no sightings, no explanation - we retrace the chain of events surrounding Michael Lee's disappearance

    [​IMG]

    Grimsby businessman Michael Lee disappeared without a trace in 2011.

    Seven years since he was last seen - and with the courts expected to soon declare him legally dead - we revisit the chain of events before he went missing and his brother's desperate efforts to trace him in the years afterwards.

    A police investigation uncovered no leads, no sightings and no explanation of his disappearance.

    Time Line Michael Lee's disappearance

    March 6 2011
    Seen alive for the last time
    Michael visits his brother John's house. He speaks to his wife, telling her he would see John later in the week. He said his brother seemed "like his normal self".

    March 7 2011
    His last calls
    Phone records show Michael's last two calls from his landline - one to his newsagent to cancel his newspapers, and another to cancel a hair appointment.

    March 16 2011
    Missing person report filed
    John reports Michael missing after he fails to locate his brother.

    March 28 2011
    Disappearance announced
    Police issue their first appeal for information. Police believe Michael had taken his blue Mercedes C220, with registration prefix KO04.

    May 31 2011
    Brother's appeal for help
    Police announced they had exhausted all lines of inquiry, prompting his 81-year-old brother and former business partner John to turn to Grimsby Telegraph readers for help.

    August 3 2011
    'End of the road'
    John said the police investigation had "nearly reached the end of the road" with no leads or sightings. The family were warned by police that Michael might have taken his own life, but John said he could not give up hope without any evidence of what might have happened.

    November 2 2016
    John Lee dies
    John Lee sadly passed away, aged 87, having never learned of his younger brother's fate.

    July 3 2018
    High Court death application announced

    Seven years after Michael went missing, an application for the 'presumed death' of Michael Lee is lodged at the High Court of Justice. A notice is posted in the classified column of the Grimsby Telegraph.

    Michael's nephew Graham, who now runs Lees Furnishers, said he hoped the family could find "closure" but the mystery of Michael's disappearance may never be solved.

    How far are locations from each other? Michael Lee is missing with his car, so could be somewhere in the body of whater not too far from his location.
