‘We wish we could do more to help’ – Fellow York student on the search to find Harvey
Friends of missing University of York student Harvey Parker say they are doing all they can to help the search.
Harvey, 20, was last seen just after midnight on Friday as he left the Heaven Nightclub by Charing Cross Railway Station in Westminster alone.
Calls to his telephone have gone unanswered, and the Metropolitan Police say there is “nothing to indicate any reason for him to go missing”.
Fellow music student William King told David Dunning on YorkMix Radio: “Since we heard the news over the weekend, it was a reaction of concern and sense of wishing there was more we could do in trying to help the search in whatever way we can.
“Because it’s the holidays and everybody is so far apart, it’s very hard to know what there is we can actually do.
“But we’re just hoping that as more people retweet and more people share on Instagram etc, word will spread and we we get closer to finding Harvey.”
Harvey had been to a Lil Simz concert in Brixton, south London, before going to Heaven Nightclub.
From Lambeth, south London, Harvey is 5ft 8ins tall, of mixed race, has a slight build and short black hair.
Detective Sergeant Dick Nation, of the Met’s Area South safeguarding unit, said. “We have not been able to speak to Harvey on his phone and we are not aware of any reason why he should not be in contact with his family.
“Both his family and police are extremely worried by his disappearance and we are asking for anyone who may have seen Harvey after he left the club, or has any other information, to call police immediately.”
The University of York said people are “very concerned about our missing student Harvey Parker”.
A notice posted London LGBT+ Forums’ Network said “my friend is missing” and urged people to try and help find Mr Parker.
