Fears grow for man who vanished in freezing weather
Fears were today growing for a young man who vanished in the freezing weather.
Adam Passfield, 22, was last seen at 2.30am on Saturday morning in Chelmsford, Essex, after an evening out with members of the Heybridge Swifts Football Club.
Essex police said that officers, family and friends have been trying to contact Mr Passfield on his mobile telephone, but without response.
Yesterday marine unit officers started to scour the River Chelmer which flows through the town centre.
Police also began searching gardens and outbuildings as well as tracing Mr Passfield's possible routes home.
"Residents in and around the town centre can assist with our search by looking in their outbuildings or sheds just in case Adam has taken shelter there during this cold weather," said investigating officer, DI Stuart Truss.
Mr Passfield is described as white, approximately six foot tall, of slim build, has short, straight brown hair and was wearing jeans, trainers and a red-chequered shirt with a black leather jacket.
