Media statement on 29th June

Guernsey Police continue to investigate the disappearance of Steven James Corbet, who was reported missing on Monday 27th June. Steven is 58 years of age, 6ft in height, large build with receding short brown hair. He has had a number of knee operations and as a result walks with a pronounced limp.
For background purposes, Steven's last known movements were as follows:

Police officers came into contact with Steven on the evening of Sunday 26th June. He was intoxicated so officers took him to hospital to be checked over by a doctor. After receiving confirmation that he was fit to detain, Steven spent an uneventful night in police custody to sober up. He was released the following morning.

We would not normally confirm details of a named individual being detained by police, as it is personal and sensitive information, but due to this ongoing missing persons investigation we have chosen to do so.

Enquiries established that, following his release, Steven subsequently visited a number of shops in Town, buying a number of items including a ruck sack before boarding the number 94 bus from the Town Terminus.

Steven was last seen at Pleinmont Car Park at midday on the 27th June. At this time he was wearing blue jeans, a dark blue t-shirt, light coloured trainers and carrying a dark rucksack, identical to that pictured below. He is believed to have then walked in the direction of Portelet. Attached to this release are images of Steven getting off the bus at Pleinmont and a rucksack, identical to the one he was carrying.
There have been no confirmed sightings of Steven since.
Police would like to hear from anyone who may have travelled on the same bus as Steven, or who was in the Pleinmont area from midday on Monday 27th who may have seen or spoken with Steven.

We would also like to repeat an appeal for landowners in the Pleinmont area to check any outbuildings.

Boat owners are also asked to check their vessels.
An information point has  been set up at Pleinmont Car Park in order to speak with regular visitors to the area and a Family Liaison Officer is currently supporting Steven's family during this time.
Guernsey Police, supported by the Channel Island Air Search and Civil Protection Volunteers, have conducted an extensive search of the area between Pleinmont and Fort Richmond and are currently undertaking further searches at Pleinmont Headland.
We remain very concerned for Steven's welfare and would urge anyone who has any information regarding his whereabouts to contact the Incident Room on tel 719474.
