Luke Durbin, who disappeared in Ipswich on May 12 last year, aged 19, is one of a number of missing people cases to be featured on the BBC's appeal programme Lifeline.

The appeal will include an interview with Luke's mother Nicki who praises the support offered by the charity Missing People.

She said: "You have the life where you have some semblance of normality where you go to work and you cook and you clean and you do all that stuff. But the other life we have is just this complete despair."

The programme will be hosted by A Place in the Sun presenter Amanda Lamb, who will highlight a number of missing people cases and ask the public to get in touch if they have any information.

Lamb chose to support Missing People after experiencing the disappearance of a loved one.
