THE BROTHER of a missing man with links to Stafford has made an emotional plea for him to make contact.
Kenneth Studders, 45, is described as white, slim build, around 5ft 11 inches tall with dark brown hair and blue eyes and has been missing from his home in Watford since June 6.
He has strong ties to Stafford and it is believed he could be in the area.
His brother, Frank Studders and best friends John O’Shea from Staffordshire and Charles Baylea made poignant appeal as Mr Bayleya’s health worsened.
“When I was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Ken made many journeys from London to see me, it meant a lot and I won’t forget it,” said Mr Bayleya. “Ken if you’re reading this, I hope you’re ok and I want you to know that things are progressing pretty fast now, I won’t be here much longer, I could do with a visit mate.“
“Kenneth, I really miss you. Please get in touch, even just to let us know you are ok.”
Kenneth’s brother Frank, said: “Ken, you are not in any trouble, we are all so worried.
“Please just let us know you are safe and have not come to any harm,” he said. “We are always here for you and can help you.”
Mr O’Shea, another close friend of Mr Studders, said: “Ken, so many people miss you.
“Please, please get in touch, even if it is just to say, ‘I am OK’ and you want to start afresh or not come back.
“You are my best mate and I am missing you so much,” he said. “The last few months have been so stressful we are thinking about you all of the time and wondering where you are.”
Police have become increasingly concerned for Mr Studder’s welfare since he went missing in June and have asked anyone with any information on his whereabouts to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800m 555 111.
