POLICE stopped 18 motorists in St Ouen on Saturday evening as part of the search for missing Islander Thomas Frost, who disappeared more than a week ago.
The 51-year-old has not been seen since he left his parents’ house in L’Etacq at around 10pm on Saturday 11 February.
Missing-person posters have been put up and leaflet drops carried out in St Ouen and St Peter. 60 police officers and staff have been involved in the operation and detectives have identified a 750m search radius from Thomas’ last known location and conducted house-to-house enquiries at every address in that area. The operation has included land searches, house-to-house enquiries, a search of the south-west and north-west coastlines, and use of the Channel Islands Air Search, drones and a police dog.
The police have confirmed that intelligence gathered from the operation has generated ‘130 actions’ of which 19 remain outstanding.
On Saturday, to mark one week since his disappearance, the police spoke to motorists around Le Mont Huelin and Mont Pinel in St Ouen in the hope that someone who walks or drives in the area may know something.
The force is reiterating its appeal for any CCTV, dash-cam or doorbell footage that could be helpful to the investigation and are continuing to ask residents in the west of the Island to check their outdoor areas, sheds, gardens, garages and to assist any neighbours that might not be able to check themselves.
Mr Frost is described as being 5ft 10, of medium build with greying hair. It’s believed that he is wearing a crimson red T-shirt underneath a navy shirt with white buttons and navy jeans. He also may be wearing a light grey hoodie over his shirt and it is still thought that he didn’t have shoes on him when he disappeared.
Anyone with information should call police on 01534 612612, option 2, option 4.
