THE sister of a missing man who vanished on her wedding day has made an emotional plea for him to return home.
Labourer John Michael Thomas Burke, 38, had never gone missing before but disappeared at 9.30am on Saturday, August 7, saying he was popping out for cigarettes.
John, who lives with his parents in Ellesmere Port, has two children, a boy and a girl, aged 11 and 13.
His sister Kate, who recently returned from her honeymoon, said: “John, where ever you are, please contact someone and let them know that you are all right.
“Everyone is really worried about you, we want to know that you’re safe. Please come home.”
His family added: “John, please contact any of the family. We are all missing you so much. Whatever is wrong, we can try to sort it out. All we want is for you to come home.”
It is believed John is on foot and does not have access to a car. He is white, about 5ft 4in tall, slim, but stocky in build, with dark hair which is receding at the front.
When he was last seen he was wearing a blue Adidas jacket with grey sleeves and stripes down the sides, a blue Dunlop T-shirt, and white trainers.
If you think you have seen John, please call police on 0845 458 0000.
