It is now 17 days since Souvik’s disappearance and I am very concerned for his welfare. I have been contacted by his father Santanu Pal who is understandably extremely distressed.
It is important that the police continue to focus their efforts on locating Souvik, but the public also has an important role.
I have also spoken to Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd. Everyone seems to be working very hard but we must all try harder to locate Souvik.
If anybody thinks they have any information regarding his disappearance they should immediately contact Greater Manchester Police.
