Two months since Adam Seaton went missing

It is 2 months today since Adam went missing, and we still hope for that one vital piece of information that may lead to us finding out where he has gone. We remain eternally grateful for all the help and support we have received from everyone, and it has been a great comfort to know how many people have been touched by Adam’s story and want to help us find him. Unfortunately, what we know is still very limited despite all the ongoing media, press and police appeals. We thought by doing this post today we could recap on the facts of Adam’s disappearance, which may help answer some of the questions that have been on people’s minds.

• Adam went missing from home in Marshside, Southport on Thursday 9th August 2018.
• He drove to a shop in Ainsdale, Southport around midday on the 9th and returned home about an hour later. (No CCTV is available.)
• The car (a red 5-door Ford Fiesta) was still outside the house just before 4.00pm. We understand Adam then drove at some point to the RSPB nature reserve car park on Marine Drive in Southport.
• We aren’t aware of Adam having been to the car park before but he may have been there in relation to his studies as a geography student at Edge Hill University.
• He had a brief phone call and text conversation with a friend around 6.10pm. This was in the vicinity of the RSPB car park but can’t be pinpointed exactly due to the position and number of phone masts in the area.
• Some time after the phone exchanges Adam’s phone went off and has remained off since.
• Dashcam footage provided to the police places the car at the car park at 6.30pm.
• The car was found at the car park at 7:00am the next morning, Friday 10th August with no sign of Adam. Soon after, we reported him missing to the police.
• There are no CCTV or other cameras at the car park, but police have carried out wider CCTV, mobile phone and other enquiries.
• Police, together with the Coastguard, Merseyside and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Services, Merseyside Search and Rescue and Southport Lifeboat have carried out extensive land and open water searches.
• We didn’t see Adam on the day but believe he was likely to have been wearing blue or black skinny jeans, a white or black t-shirt, possibly a burgundy hoodie, and suede trainers.
• We believe that Adam may have been carrying a navy blue Adidas rucksack, and had his glasses with him.
• There have been various unconfirmed sightings of Adam both locally and around the country, but as yet none have led anywhere.
• Adam’s phone, financial and social media activity have all been checked.

Once again thank you for all your continued support. It is this and the help from family, friends, colleagues and the wider community that has kept us going. We would like to ask everyone to keep sharing posts about Adam and refresh old posters where possible. The latest poster is available to download in this group’s files tab.
