Media statement on 30th June

Guernsey Police continue to investigate the disappearance of Steven James Corbet.

Mr Corbet was last seen alighting from the number 94 Bus at Portelet at midday on Monday 27th June 2016.  He is believed to have then walked in the direction of Pleinmont Headland.

Steven is 58 years of age and described as 6ft in height, of large build with receding short brown hair. He has had a number of knee operations and as a result walks with a pronounced limp. At the time he was last seen, he was wearing blue jeans, a dark blue t-shirt, light coloured trainers and carrying a dark rucksack.

There have been no confirmed sightings of Steven since this time and Police continue to be concerned for his welfare.

Guernsey Police, have been conducting extensive area searches over the last four days and are now focusing these searches around the Pleinmont area. This search is being co-ordinated by a specially trained officer and supported by Air Search, the In Shore Rescue Crew and Civil Protection. Advice has also been sought from search advisers in Jersey and UK.

An information point has been set up at Pleinmont Car Park in order that officers can speak with regular visitors to the area and it is anticipated that this will remain in place over the weekend.

Family Liaison Officers are currently supporting Steven's partner and extended family during this difficult time.

Guernsey Police would like to thank the public for their response to the appeal for information to date and would remind anyone who may have seen Steven in Town, during the morning of the 27th June, travelled on the same bus or seen him at Pleinmont to contact them on the Incident Room number tel 719474.

We would also repeat the appeal for landowners in the Pleinmont area to continue checking any outbuildings and notify to Police any unusual activities or signs of disturbance that may indicate someone using them for shelter.
