Four weeks on in search for Northwich man Date published: 13th May 2017 11.34am

The police search for missing Northwich man continues as today marks the four week anniversary of his disappearance.

Michael Price, 40, from Winnington, was last seen on the morning of Saturday 15 April in the Shakespeare Close area of Rudheath and the adjacent rural area towards the Danefields estate.

He is described as white, approximately 6’1” tall, of slim build with green eyes and short brown greying hair. He was last seen wearing a green Henry Lloyd parka style top, blue jeans and blue trainers.

Chief Inspector Simon Meegan, who is co-ordinating the search for Michael, said: “As we pass the four week anniversary of Michael’s disappearance I would like people to take a few minutes out and think back to what they were doing on 15 April. Were you out in the Northwich area, could you have seen Michael?

“I’m particularly keen to hear from anyone who was out in the Rudheath area and the rural area adjacent to the river Dane. The area is popular with dog walkers and joggers, and I believe that there may be people who were in the area around the time Michael disappeared who may be able to help with the investigation.”

As part of on-going enquiries to locate Michael officers are working closely with a number of support agencies, including the National Police Air Support unit, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and the North West Underwater Search. The team are also being supported by a number of volunteers from Cheshire Search and Rescue and Staffordshire Search and Rescue.

Whilst the search continues, officers continue to urge local residents to check their sheds and outbuildings in the event that Michael might have sought shelter.

Chief Inspector Meegan added: “Michael’s family have now spent four weeks agonising over his disappearance and anxiously waiting for news of his whereabouts and I would appeal to anyone with any information to contact us on 101.”

Anyone with any information in relation to the whereabouts of Michael is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 303 of April 16. Information can also be passed anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
