The partner of missing Northumberland man Matt Adams has appealed for him to come home.

Fiona Leighton reported Matt missing from their Drummonds Close home, in Longhorsley, on Tuesday.

She has now urged the 34-year-old to get in touch.

In a message to Matt, Fiona said: “Matt, we all love you and miss you very much.

“Please get in touch and let us know you’re safe and please come home.”

Northumbria Police officers, supported by the force’s mounted and dog section and Mountain Rescue, are spending a third day trying to locate Matt.

House-to-house inquiries are continuing and the mobile police station is once again parked in the centre of Longhorsley for people to go along and talk to officers if they have any information on Matt’s whereabouts.

Matt is described as white, 5ft 10ins-tall and of medium build. He has mousey blond hair which is shaven on the sides and longer on the top and a bald spot on his crown.

He has distinctive ear piercings, including large spacers in his lobes and little spacers at the top of his ear with scaffold bars. He also has his tongue and nose pierced as well as several tattoos.

When last seen he was wearing black trousers, a black baseball cap and black Dr Marten-style boots. He was also wearing silver necklace with a large silver ring attached and wristbands, including one with his name on.

Superintendent Mick Paterson, from Northumberland Area Command, said: “I’d once again appeal to anyone who may have seen Matt or knows of his whereabouts to get in touch.

“Our searches in Longhorsley and the surrounding rural areas are continuing today and we’ll be continuing to speak to people in the village.

“Again I’d ask local farmers, gamekeepers and landowners to check outbuildings and other shelters for any sign of him as we believe he’s on foot.

“Anyone with information, no matter how small or insignificant they think it is, should contact us as it may help lead to Matt’s safe return.”
