A DISTRAUGHT Ellesmere Port woman says she is ‘worried sick’ after her stepbrother disappeared at a Christmas party.
Haydn Mark Evans, 18, who lives in Mold, North Wales, was last seen at a Christmas party laid on by his employer MPH Construction at Carden Park hotel on Friday night.
Nobody has heard from him since 1am on Saturday morning, when he was seen at the front door of the hotel, in Broxton Road, near Chester.
A massive police manhunt is being led by Cheshire Constabulary involving search teams and specialist units, including air support and dog patrols, have spent the last three days searching the area around Carden Park Hotel and Broxton in the hope of finding clues to Haydn’s whereabouts.
His stepsister Jade Conway, 26, a beautician from Ellesmere Port, said Haydn’s dad, Graeme Evans, has frantically contacted all his friends but no trace of him has been found.
She said: “His phone is going straight to voicemail.
“It’s totally out of character for him and we are worried sick. He is a typical teenager who likes to go out at the weekends with his friends, but he has never failed to return home before.
“Graeme was also at the party because he works for the same firm.
“He left earlier than Haydn and hasn’t seen or heard from him since. There was a minibus laid on for them, but Haydn never got on it.
“We are starting to panic now. Haydn’s dad, Graeme, is going out of his mind with worry and we just feel so helpless.
“The police have been sending liaison officers round and they have also searched Haydn’s room to make sure there is nothing to suggest he has run away or planned this.
“We just want him home.”
Haydn is about 5ft 9in, slim and has short brown hair and blue eyes.
He was last seen wearing the dark long-sleeved shirt he is wearing in the photograph (right) and trousers. He did not have a jacket or coat but may have had some money and his mobile phone.
Police fear the combination of surroundings unfamiliar to Haydn and the cold weather could have left him vulnerable and disorientated.
Stepsister Jade Conway, nee Edwards, who has taken to Twitter and Facebook to appeal for help, issued a direct appeal to her brother: “Haydn, we are all devastated about your disappearance. If you are listening to this, or have seen the appeal for you, please contact us. We are all so worried about you and need to know you are safe.”
Police are asking anyone who lives in the area to check any empty buildings on their land, including farm outbuildings, sheds or garages in case Haydn has taken shelter from the cold weather.
They are keen to hear from dog walkers, or anyone else who went walking near Carden Park Hotel on Saturday, December 17, to contact them if they saw anyone fitting Haydn’s description.
Police are also appealing for anyone who was travelling on the A41 Whitchurch Road, or A534 Wrexham Road, during the early hours of Saturday, December 17, and saw anyone who fits Haydn’s description to make contact with Cheshire constabulary.
Police are urging any taxi drivers who may have seen someone fitting Haydn’s description in the area around Carden Park, or who may have taken a fare from someone fitting his description, to make contact immediately as they may have information that will assist in locating Haydn.
Anyone with any information should call Cheshire Constabulary using the new 101 police contact number.
