The distressed family of Daniel Jarvis are urging him to return home.

Daniel, 30, of Burlington Avenue, York, has not been seen or heard since the time he left work early at the Royal Mail Sorting Office, on Leeman Road, at about 9.40am on Friday 15 November 2013.

He had been feeling unwell and told colleagues that he was intending to travel home to the Melrosegate area on the number six First York bus.

His last known sighting was on CCTV as he walked over Lendal Bridge towards the city centre at 9.50am.

Extensive police enquiries and searches remain ongoing in the effort to locate Daniel, as well as a public appeal for information.

Today (Sunday 17 November), searches and visual checks will be conducted along the River Ouse and River Foss with assistance from the North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue boat.

The appeal is also being supported by the Missing People charity.

His parents Colleen Jarvis and Andrew Croft, who he lives with along with his brother Adam, reported him missing to the police on Friday evening after he failed to return home.

Mrs Jarvis said: “Please come home son. We are past ourselves with worry and we are desperate to know that you are safe.

“We love you so much and to think you are in distress is breaking our hearts.

“We are here for you, Daniel, the whole family are anxious to have you back home where you belong. Please let us know that you are okay.”

Daniel’s sister, Fay Jarvis, has provided a favourite photograph of him with her son Finnley. She said Daniel dotes on Finnley and her other son Lindan.

Fay said: “Please get in touch Dan, you mean so much to us all. Finnley and Lindan love you to bits, they want their uncle home as soon as possible.”

Inspector Lee Pointon, of the York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We are doing everything we can to locate Daniel and reunite him with his family.

“Again, we are still appealing for people to come forward who possibly recall seeing him since Friday morning.

“Daniel is described as white with brown hair, he is 5ft 11inches tall and he has a slim build. When he was last seen he was wearing a Royal Mail red fleece jacket and a blue woollen hat with a white band around it.

“We need to know of any possible sighting of Daniel so we can concentrate our searches and enquiries in the right places. If you can assist, please get in touch as a matter of urgency.”

If you can help the missing person enquiry, please call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1, and speak to the Force Control Room.
