    Police have identified two men wanted in connection with the disappearance of a student in his first week of university.

    Thomas Jones, 18, was last seen near the River Severn in Worcester during the early hours of Wednesday.

    This one is not looking like it is going to have a good outcome.

    This is a pretty local case to me - about 20 miles away. Will be following.

    Not far from me also, and I'm a fellow season ticket holder.

    Not sounding good, I'm guessing they believe Thomas is dead.

    I wonder what Tom was doing walking towards Hallow at that time of morning. It's a village so not the sort of place where you'd expect to find typical student accommodation.

    As a Bromsgove lad, living only about 10 miles from Worcester, there'd be no need for him to be living away from home - especially as living at home would reduce his ongoing costs and eventual student debt considerably. It seems unlikely that he'd be walking from the university to home as it was probably too far to walk and in any event he was heading in the wrong direction.

    Maybe worth a mention that Tom disappeared only a few miles from where Stephen Woolley was found drowned in the Severn about 18 months ago.

    This is confusing.

    Man arrested over disappearance of student, 18, who went missing after a fresher's night out at university

    Would you really phone your mum at 3am to say you got home safely? Was she sitting up at that time waiting for a phone call (if so, how bizarre) or was she in bed asleep and did he wake her up?

    Also that seems to indicate he was not living at the family home in Bromsgrove but was presumably forking out rent to live barely 10 miles away. Given the cost of tuition fees these days many students choose to attend a local university in order to live at home and save money. Those who really want the whole going away from home experience tend to choose a more distant university to attend for the added independence.

    There's so much that's not being reported.

    Where was Tom actually living?
    Why would he be heading towards Hallow?
    Who is the man who's been arrested? Is he connected with Tom in any way or a complete stranger?

    I went to a university just 7 miles from home. The first year I lived at my parents home, but it became difficult because I didn't have the freedom and independence that my new university friends had, so the second and third years I rented a room in a house with my friends. Whilst living at home my Mum would stay up worrying if I went on a night out with friends. I guess some Mum's worry more than others. This put pressure on our relationship and my want for independence so that's why I moved out despite the university being so close to home. Maybe if his Mum was the worrying, smothering kind, he decided he wanted that independence from the start, despite not living far away. Maybe that university had the perfect course for him so he didn't want to go to one miles away. He might have felt it was the best of both worlds.

    Just throwing it out there anyway!

    This is odd. When I saw he was missing I assumed it was the usual young man drunk near a river scenario so the arrests have thrown me. I wonder what reason the police have to think something sinister happened?

    The police must have very strong evidence against the two that are arrested, they would normally wait until the body has been found ,

    Yes, I wonder what the motive was if a crime was committed. He had only just moved to the area. Maybe he got into a disagreement or fight with the two men and they followed him later and did something to him. It will be interesting to see what emerges.

    Yes, perhaps something was caught on CCTV that they haven't shared with us yet.
