Jean Thompson says "It's like he's fallen off the face of the earth" as she spoke of the heartache of her son's disappearance 20 years ago.
Sean Thompson left his home in Knottingley in West Yorkshire and was never seen again. His mother and sister hope a new appeal may bring him back. Tina Gelder reports.
West Yorkshire Police have also released a statement to mark the 20 year anniversary of the disappearance of Sean Thompson.
Twenty years after a man from West Yorkshire was reported missing, his family have made an emotional plea for information about his disappearance.
Sean Thompson was 25 when he left his home in Knottingley on March 18 1993 to go to the job centre.
Detectives investigating his disappearance have digitally enhanced an image of Sean to show what he could look like today at the age of 45.
Ruth Thompson-Douglas, Sean’s sister, said: "Sean's now been missing for 20 years and they always say times a healer, but for us it hasn’t been, as we have no idea where Sean is, it's like he's literally fallen off the face of the earth.
“We live everyday hoping he will walk back into our lives and we will know he is safe.
“Sean was very quiet but would do anything for anyone; he was very kind, friendly and caring."
