POLICE investigating the disappearance of Luke Durbin have today spoken of their disappointment at the response to their latest CCTV appeal.

Last week officer's probing the 19-year-old's disappearance released CCTV footage of people seen in the same area as Luke near the time of his last confirmed sighting.

But Anne-Marie Breach, spokeswoman for the force, today said none of those people pictured had come forward.

She said: “We are disappointed that no one has come forward.

“Obviously those people on the CCTV will be quite recognisable and somebody, we would hope, will have knowledge of people who might be at the bus station at that time in the morning either working or visiting people under their normal routine.

“We have not had any calls at all.”

Miss Breach said police needed to speak to the people captured on the stills to discover if they might have seen the Hollesley teenager.

She said it was just as important to know they hadn't seen him so officers could rule certain routes he may have taken out of their inquiries.

Luke was last seen about 4am on Friday, May 12 walking towards the Cattle Market bus station.

The images show a person wearing a hooded coat and dark trousers walking around Fore Street, past the Spread Eagle pub about 4.11am.

A silver car, possibly a Volvo or Mercedes, was also captured outside Tinkerbelle in Tacket Street about 4.09am.

A person carrying a white carrier bag along Dogs Head Street at 4.16am and a pedestrian crossing the same street near Best Kebabs are also sought.

Police also want to speak to a group of people seen chatting at the bus station between 4.30am and 4.40am.

Anyone with information should call Woodbridge police on 01473 613500.
