As they mark the second Father's Day since his disappearance, the family of Scott Fletcher are asking for help to find him.
Scott, who is father to five year old Lucie and stepfather to seven year old Bradley, was last seen on May 11 last year in the layby on the A181 at Wheatley Hill in Durham.
Cleveland, Durham and Cumbria Police have been involved in the search for the 28 year old from Hartlepool.
Shelley Marshall, Scott’s ex-partner, said: “Lucie is very confused and upset. She has been making Fathers’ Day cards at school and she can’t give her Daddy her card.”
