Police are making a fresh appeal for any information about a young mother who went missing from her home in the Black Country ten years ago.
17-year-old Natalie Putt left her home in Lower Gornal saying she was just popping out, leaving her eleven week old son with relatives.
At the time there were unconfirmed sightings of her in Cradley Heath and Coseley and in 2004 an 18-year-old man was arrested in connection to her disappearance but was released without charge.
West Midlands Detective Sergeant Matt Morgan overseeing the case said, 'If anyone has any niggling suspicions about what happened to Natalie, or information they've kept to themselves, I'd urge them to contact us.'
Police are searching for a man in Herefordshire who hasn't been seen since the discovery of his abandoned vehicle in the Black Mountains.
Michael Ruck, 45, has not been seen since leaving work in Hereford on Thursday (February 14).
Yesterday his vehicle – a grey VW Transporter van – was found by police parked near to Grwyne Fawr Reservoir in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Police are searching the local area with the assistance of mountain rescue teams in hope of finding him safe and well. They are urging local farmers and residents to check their outbuildings for any sightings of Mr Ruck.
He is described as white, around 5ft 9in, and with short cropped brown hair. He has tattoos on both arms. He may be wearing a light blue work fleece and navy outdoor trousers.
