Update: Mum of Luke Durbin has always appealed for public’s help

NICKI Durbin previously described her son’s disappearance as “out of character” and has constantly appealed to the public for their help with the investigation.

Since Luke vanished in May 2006, Nicki had launched a Find Luke website, led a major poster campaign, appeared on national television and has taken part in a parliamentary debate on missing people.

She previously told of her heartache and need to know what happened to her 19-year-old son.

She said: “Not an hour of a day goes by without my thoughts turning to Luke. I wonder what happened to him that night, where he is now, whether he is dead or alive. The not knowing tears at my soul constantly.

In a separate interview she said: “This was completely out of character for Luke - it was just not something Luke would do.

“I know it sounds a cliche but Luke really did walk out of the door laughing.

“He had been working at a greengrocer’s in Aldeburgh and was in such good spirits. It makes absolutely no sense.”
