A man is missing after he went on a night out with friends and did not get home.

Jack O’Sullivan has now been missing for a month, including the date of his twenty third birthday.

Detective Inspector Jason Chidgey said: ‘This is an incredible difficult and distressing time for Jack’s family and friends and we are continuing our efforts to try and find him.’

Speaking at the site he was last seen in Bristol on March 2, he said: ‘It has been one month since Jack was last seen down in the Cumberland Basin area and we continue to appeal for anyone who may have been driving along these roads and may have seen something, or have dashcam footage if they did not see it themselves.’

The last confirmed sighting was around 3.15am in the Brunel Lock/Brunel Way area of the West Country city.

He is described as white, around 5ft 10ins tall, of slim build, with short, brown hair. He was wearing a quilted green/brown Barbour jacket, a beige woollen jumper, navy chinos and brown leather trainers with white soles.

DI Chidgey said: ‘If you live in the area and have CCTV or video doorbells, please check back to Saturday 2 March and see if you notice anything or anyone meeting Jack’s description.

‘The smallest bit of information could make a huge difference in our investigation so, even if you don’t think it is important, we encourage people to still get in touch with us.

‘We are keeping an open mind about where Jack is but this is very out of character for him and we have been working hard to track his movements that night.

‘Detectives have carried out extensive CCTV trawls, house-to-house enquiries, we have deployed a specialist dive team to search the basin and the wider River Avon – due to Jack’s proximity to the river when he was last seen – and have been looking at his phone and why that was active after his last confirmed sighting.’
