FRIENDS and family of missing Stone man Kieran 'Lally' McColl have turned out to conduct their own search around the area where he was last seen.
The group met at Westbridge Park yesterday evening and searched the surrounding area and the routes from the park to his home on the outskirts of Stone.
Family members have also renewed Twitter appeals to help find him.
The 21-year-old, known as Lally to his friends and family, has not been seen since he was dropped off by a friend in Trent Close, Stone, at around 10.30pm on Thursday.
CCTV and witnesses have confirmed that Lally was on his own and walked from Trent Close onto Westbridge Park, past the leisure centre car park on his left and in the direction of his home address in Thomas Avenue.
This is roughly a 20-25 minute walk and his route could have taken him from the canal tow path via a canal bridge onto the estate.
Staffordshire police officers, including specialist search teams, supported by the police helicopter, Staffordshire Search and Rescue Team and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue have also carried out "extensive and detailed" searches in Stone and around the Trent and Mersey Canal in a bid to find Lally.
Lally, who suffers from epilepsy and needs regular medication, is described as about 5ft 8in tall, with a pale completion, of stocky, muscular build, with blond shaven hair.
When he was last seen he was wearing dark grey pinstripe trousers, a dark blue jumper and a white striped shirt with a white collar, grey tie, a gold chain necklace and zipped black and white hooded coat.
Police say they are "very concerned" about him and anyone who may have seen him is asked to contact the police on 101, quoting incident 290 of May 8.
