But now, new information suggests there may have been a sighting of him at Greenhead Hotel, in Greenhead near Brampton, on October 21.

We now have new information to release which may spark the memory of people who were staying in or around Kielder in the days after Kilian's disappearance.

Members of the public have contacted us to say a man who looked like Kilian was staying at the Greenhead Hotel, Greenhead, on the evening of October 21.

Witnesses say the man looked similar to the photos we have released of Kilian, spoke with a foreign accent and gave the name of Davidson.

We appeal to the man, or anyone who may have seen or spoken to him to contact us as they may have vital information to help with enquiries.

We are working closely with Kilian's family to keep them updated of our progress and they are understandably distressed and desperate to know where Kilian is."
