Prominent fashion blogger Susie Bubble has announced her boyfriend of ten years Steve Salter is missing.
Bubble, who started the well-known blog Style Bubble in 2006, issued a plea for help in locating Salter on Twitter and Instagram. She said she last saw Salter, who is a digital editor at i-D magazine, at 10am on Monday morning when he set off for work from Seven Sisters in London.
The blogger, whose real name is Susanna Lau, said Salter did not show up for work and his phone is switched off. She is currently eight months pregnant.
Salter said she has filed a missing person’s report with the police.
“He was in a completely normal state of mind when we last spoke yesterday morning and we were due to go to the #FashionAwards together.” Lau wrote on Instagram.
“I realise it has not been a long length of time to be missing but if you know Steve, him disappearing like this is completely uncharacteristic. I along with his family and friends are very very worried about him.
"Some of you will know that I'm eight months pregnant and I'm trying to stay as calm as I can, so if anybody has seen him or knows of his whereabouts please please please get in touch.”
Lau said someone matching Salter’s description had been spotted crossing Waterloo Bridge walking on the Strand towards Trafalgar Square at approximately 12 noon. She also described and shared photos of the exact clothing he had been wearing when he had left.
"I know you think my missing boyfriend case is low priority but please try and help me dig deeper as another night approaches," she wrote today on Twitter.
“I know it's protocol but finding it quite irritating that banks or phone companies won't allow me to access any tidbits of useful information concerning Steve Salter’s movements without police intervention … Waiting like this is torture".
Lau is a respected fashion blogger and followers of Style Bubble include Christopher Kane and Nanette Lepore.
Lau and the Metropolitan Police did not immediately respond to request for comment.
