Marcus Digby disappearance query

Dorset Police Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Dorset Police,

I'm doing a bit of research on several missing persons cases through the UK and was hoping you could help me find out the answers to a few questions. The topic I'm looking at is the disappearance of Marcus Rigby from Weymouth in 1995.

-It has been stated in the media by the mother of Marcus Rigby that his intentions were to start afresh and move to Dorset in search of work and a new life. She also mentioned that he planned to be "go(ing) with some people". Have these people ever been identified? If so, what were their relationship to him? Have they managed to shed any light on his disappearance?

-It is noted that the last time Marcus was seen was April 1995, when he left the home of his aunt to head for Weymouth. How did he plan to make his way to Weymouth? Did he drive or take public transportation? If he drove, has his car ever been located?

-Has anyone heard from Marcus since this time in April? What types of checks have been done to find him (e.g. check to see if National Insurance Number, Credit/ Debit cards have been used etc.). To your knowledge, when were these checks last undertaken?

- It was reported that in 2007 a Television appeal led to around a dozen tips coming in from the public. One can assume that some of these would have been reported sightings of him- if this is the case, have any of them been substantiated?

If you can divulge any additional information about this case, it would be very helpful to me, However I appreciate this may not be possible to do given the sensitive information of a presumably still active case.

Thank you very much for your time

Yours faithfully,

James Bouchier
