Search for missing man remains active

POLICE are continuing to pursue lines of enquiry about missing man Matthew Bourgaize after one person came forward believing they were the male Police appealed for earlier this week.

On Wednesday, Guernsey Police said a man who looked like Matthew Bourgaize was seen singing and riding his bike in the Vale.

They wanted to talk to the man to ensure it was not the 29-year-old who has been missing since 11 January.

'To date we have received more than 150 calls from the public in relation to the search. We want to thank everyone for their help and for taking the time to call and tell us their information,' a spokesperson for Guernsey Police said.

'We would like to ask members of the public to call us immediately if they believe they have a sighting of Matthew, as we may have officers in the area who can respond.

'Sometimes people are waiting until the next day to call us, and although the information is useful, the more timely it is, the better.'

Islanders have been asked not to leave comments on the Police Facebook page with potential sightings as it is not monitored 24/7.

Calling the Joint Emergency Control Centre on 725111 is the most efficient and effective way to get information to the Police.

They asked that everyone makes themselves familiar with the image of Mr Bourgaize and contact the Police with any information.

'Let us decide how valuable that information is, don't keep it to yourself,' they said.

The search for Mr Bourgaize remains active.
