The mother of missing Matthew Jordan has appealed for anyone who saw him on Wednesday night or Thursday morning to get in touch.

The 20-year-old from Middlesbrough had been visiting Bowness-on-Windermere with three friends when he went missing on a night out.

His friends last saw him at the Stags Heads Pub at 12:30am on Thursday morning 27th March. His last possible sighting was in Bowness at 1am on Thursday (27th March) outside the Hole in the Wall pub.

“We would like to make second appeal for the whereabouts of Matthew Jordan. It is now been almost a week since Matthew was last seen this is totally out of character. Matthew was visiting Windermere and Bowness with three of his friends. He had not visited this area since he was a child.

“Matthew is 6ft tall. He was wearing a blue checked shirt and light blue jeans with boots. Matthew is a happy and popular person who loves sport. He is studying for a criminology degree and wants to join the police.

“We know Matthew was around the Stags Heads Pub at 12:30am on Thursday morning 27th March when he got separated from his friends. We know Matthew had money on him and that his mobile phone battery had gone flat.

“He asked for assistance at one establishment to use a phone charger and a taxi to be ordered. He also asked at another establishment for a room for the night. Unfortunately none of these requests were fulfilled.

“Matthew was last seen heading towards the Rayrigg Road at around 1am. We believe that there must be more sightings of Matthew at this time, please come forward with any information no matter how small
