As the webmaster of FindLuke.com I would personally like to thank The Evening Star for their section on Luke. This is the first time I've seen a media outlet do something like this. I am in the US and see many media sites worldwide. I do believe this is the first time I've seen one dedicate a section to a missing person.

In my personal opinion, if any city media outlet has a website online, they should have a missing persons section. Thank You for your support.

New police lead on missing teen
22 May 2006 | 14:57 article link - EveningStar.co.uk



POLICE searching for missing teenager Luke Durbin say they are 90 per cent sure he was spotted in a car just days after his disappearance.

Luke, 19, went missing after a night out in Ipswich on Thursday May 11.

Officers have received a number of calls from members of the public following appeals last week and say it seems likely he was in a dark blue Renault - possibly a Megane - in Woodbridge at around 11.30am on Saturday May 13. 

A man matching Luke's description was seen by friends in the car which had stopped at traffic lights near the Turban Centre.

Police are keen to trace the driver of the car, said to be a black man possibly in his mid 20s to 30s, and are urging him to contact officers as soon as possible.

Meanwhile officers say they now know that Luke was trying to get home in the early hours of Friday morning after leaving the Zest nightclub.

They are asking anyone who may have been approached by him for a lift, or who picked him up a hitchhiker between Ipswich and Woodbridge.

Police have followed several lines of enquiry since Luke's disappearance including viewing CCTV footage, distributing flyers, helicopter searches along routes he may have taken, phone and bank checks and checks with taxi firms.

Luke is described as white, 5ft 10ins, of slim build, with short mousy-coloured wavy hair and blue eyes.

When he disappeared he was wearing a black or grey long-sleeved collared shirt, blue jeans and brown suede shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 01473 613500.

Search is stepped up for missing Luke

HELICOPTERS are to scour open land between Ipswich and Hollesley as part of a police investigation to track down a missing teenager.

Luke Durbin went missing on May 11 after visiting Ipswich nightspot Zest with friends.

Police believe there has been a confirmed sighting of him leaving the Ipswich town area, in Old Foundry Road, at 3.40am the following morning.

But the 19-year-old never made it back to his Hollesley home and an investigation has since been launched to find him.

Anne-Marie Breach, a spokeswoman for Ipswich police, said: The search started by contacting the 100 people logged in his mobile phone.

A police helicopter was also sent out to search the River Gipping and sniffer dogs were also used but shortly after the sighting of him moving in the opposite direction we decided not to continue looking in that area.

Over the next few days the helicopter will be sent out again, this time concentrating on open land between Ipswich and Woodbridge, especially Rushmere Heath.

Footage from CCTV cameras located on his route home will be checked. 

Officers will follow up any reported sightings from media appeals and an anniversary check, held on Thursday night carried out alongside the nightclub a week after he went missing.

Flyers were also distributed around the area he lives.

Miss Breach added: When Luke's disappearance went on for longer than two days police stepped up their investigation.

The longer it goes without him making contact with either friends or family the more concerned we are getting. 

At the time of his disappearance Luke was wearing a black or grey long-sleeved collared shirt, blue jeans and brown suede shoes.

Hunt for clues to try and find Luke

Luke Derbin 
POLICE were scouring CCTV footage today for clues in the hunt for missing teenager Luke Durbin.

More than a week has now passed since the 19-year-old disappeared after a night out in Ipswich with his friends and officers handed out leaflets to those going to Zest nightclub last night - the venue where Luke had been.

Sergeant Neil Reid said: We are currently following on with all lines in the inquiry. We have received a report that Luke was seen in Old Foundry Road, in Ipswich, at 3.40am on Friday May 12.

CCTV footage is being viewed to try to track his movements beyond this time.

Leaflets were distributed last night in Ipswich around Zest nightclub to people going inside and to taxi drivers working in the area.

We will follow up any information received from last night's efforts.

Police have also been chasing up three possible sightings of Luke in Woodbridge and Sainsbury's in Ipswich.

Nicki Durbin, Luke's mother, said: If he is reading this I would just ask him to get in contact with us to let us know he is OK.

He lives in Hollesley and is described as white, 5ft 10in, of slim build, with short mousy-colou red wavy hair and blue eyes.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a black or grey long-sleeved collared shirt, blue jeans and brown suede shoes.

Police are asking Mr Durbin, or anyone with information about where he is, to contact Woodbridge police station on 01473 613500.

Police step up search for Luke

Luke Durbin 
POLICE in Ipswich are today stepping up their search for missing teenager Luke Durbin.

Officers will be distributing leaflets and posters across the town tonight - one week on from the 19-year-old's disappearance.

Mr Durbin of Hollesley went missing last Thursday following a night out with friends at Zest nightclub.

Police said there have been three possible sightings of him since - two from people claiming to have seen him in Woodbridge and a further possible sighting at Sainsbury's in Ipswich.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: These sightings are something we are trying to check at the moment.

We have a team based at Woodbridge police station following several lines of enquiry.

In later editions of yesterday's Evening Star, Mr Durbin's desperate mother Nicki, 37, told how he had became separated from his friends on the night of his disappearance.

Mrs Durbin said: I don't think boys are quite as concerned as girls are about splitting up and they assumed he had gone back.

They thought he would turn up on Friday but he obviously didn't.

Mrs Durbin says her family is frantic with worry over the son she describes as a talented musician. 

Luke, a former pupil at Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge, started working at a greengrocers in Aldeburgh around a month ago.

Mrs Durbin added: He is so enthusiastic about his job - he loves it there.

I can't think of a reason for him to go missing.

If Luke is reading this I would just ask him to get in contact with us to let us know he is OK.

Mr Durbin is described as white, 5ft 10in, of slim build, with short mousy-coloured wavy hair and blue eyes.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a black or grey long-sleeved collared shirt, blue jeans and brown suede shoes.

Police are asking Mr Durbin, or anyone with information about where he is, to contact Woodbridge police station on 01473 613500.

Please help find Luke
17 May 2006 | 22:30 article link - EveningStar.co.uk



A DESPERATE mother is today appealing for information to help find her teenage son.

Nicki Durbin, 37, says her family is frantic with worry over the mysterious disappearance of 19-year-old Luke Durbin following a night out with friends at Zest nightclub last Thursday .

Mrs Durbin, who lives in H ollesley, said: We are frantic and have gone through every conceivable emotion.

This is totally out of character for Luke.

He does go out and does not necessarily phone me until the next morning but he has never done anything like this before, she added.

Mrs Durbin says she has no idea why her bright and intelligent son has vanished as he loves his job at a greengrocers in Aldeburgh and is always happy and sociable.

We are a very close family and Luke is very considerate, he just wouldn't do this kind of thing,

He has got a huge circle off friends but not one of them has heard anything from him.

Mrs Durbin says police are following up a reported sighting of Luke at Sainsbury's in Ipswich.

However she believes efforts to trace him via bank transactions have proved fruitless.

Mr Durbin was last seen in the early hours of Friday morning and failed to return to his home, where he lives with his mum and 16-year-old sister, or work as expected. 

He also failed to pick up personal property including a mobile phone from a friend's home.

Police officers have upped their search for Mr Durbin and are growing increasingly worried for him. 

A spokeswoman for the force yesterday said: The longer he is away the more concerned we are.

Mr Durbin is described as white 5ft 10in, of slim build, with short mousy-coloured wavy hair and blue eyes.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a black or grey long-sleeved collared shirt, blue jeans and brown suede shoes.

Police are asking Mr Durbin, or anyone with information about where he is, to contact Woodbridge police station on 01473 613500.
