Appeal: Missing Merseyside Man Ian Long

18th March 2015

Merseyside police have released a new image of missing man Ian Long.

Ian Long, 41, was last seen by his sister at an address on Honeysuckle Road in Hesketh Bank on Tuesday 5 September 2014 but has not made contact with family members since.

It is believed that Mr Long may have stayed with friends in recent months and is thought to have stayed in the Kirkby area in January.

He is described as white, 5ft 7 tall, of a slim build with dark brown hair, although as the new picture shows, he often shaves his hair off completely.

As well as connections to the Kirkby area he is known to have connections to Southport & Skelmersdale.

DI Marc Nasser of Skelmersdale Police said: “There have been no confirmed sightings of Ian since our last appeal and his family and friends are growing increasingly concerned about his whereabouts.

“I would urge anyone who might know of Ian’s whereabouts or Ian himself, if he sees this appeal, to make contact with us to let us know he is safe.”
