Also on the BBC, local news, the Sun etc.

I haven’t seen this mentioned on Mumsnet so decided to put it up: the family is friends of good friends. He has been missing since mid October and his family is desperate. They think he might have gone to France or Switzerland. He will probably be out of medication by now. It’s been shared extensively on Facebook.

On the off chance, please could Mumsnetters look and share too, thinking about his wife and children?

Bumping.

Velvet, thank you. I’m bumping too, hoping others see it.

Bumping this again, the family so so want to hear of him, see him. It’s been a long 50 days. Obviously even more excruciating with Christmas coming up.

How sad for everyone although I doubt we can really blame his employer for his bipolar as some reports suggest.

So he wanted to leave adn did not want to be tracked to left his mobile behind and took his passport and presumably the reported sightings on him show him not restrained by anyone and just cycling around France.

Not knowing must be the worst thing. If people could just tell family members they are safe that is always so much easier then at least you aren't worrying so much.

Thank you for bumping and bringing back up. There’s picture of h8m on Facebook with the sort of cap he was wearing on CCTV. He may have a folding bike. If there’s anyone near Divonne, Nyon, Geneva, Commugny or any of the communes/villages nearby, please please pass on. He’s almost bound to have run out of medication. I don’t know him personally but his wife is a good friend of some of my oldest friends.

What a nightmare for the wife. I hope he's found and gets medical attention.

Hasn’t been so far...

Just been told by friend that he’s been found and his wife has spoken to him. I know no more than that...

But thank heavens...

Thank you to all MNrs and HQ who shared this or looked for him..
