I would like to thank each and every one of you who took the time to blog/tweet/facebook Ben's poster. Your willingness to help and your kindness was very much appreciated.

Hello Furpals everywhere,

I know I have been absent for some time (blame the useless secretary not me!) but today I am here to make a heartfelt plea to you all.

I want to mobilise you all to help me in a furry important mission, I really need your help and I hope lots of you will join me on

A young man from my area is missing, it has now been over a week since anyone saw or heard from him and as you can imagine his family and friends are desperatley worried and need all the help they can get.

Our mission is simple.. below are some details of where Ben was last seen, clothes he was wearing, items he may have been carrying etc below that is a poster showing a recent photograph of Ben. All I ask is that you post it to your blog, no matter how close/far you are geographically. The more widespread the picture then the higher the possibility that someone will see it that has information to aid the search for Ben. Please ask your followers to blog it, email it to their contacts, show it to friends/family/colleagues or random passers by! The more people that see it the better.
This has not hit the national news, only the local news, getting Ben's face and the details of his disappearance out to a wider audience increases the chances of relevant information becoming available to the family/police.

QUICK EDIT & UPDATE: Please can I re-iterate that no matter where in the world you are, please, please, please post the missing poster with Bens photo on your blog, you may have readers in the UK that would never visit this blog, the more his face is seen the higher the chance of information, paw power furfriends, lets get his face worldwide and give his family the best hope of answers to his disappearance - Ben xxxx

If you blog it please take a second to come back and post a link to the post so I can personally thank you and let Ben's family and friends know the level of support we can achieve when we fire up the power of the paw!

I know my wonderful furry friends won't let me down on this!

Thank you, I love you all.



Seventeen-year-old Ben from Swillington in Leeds was reported missing by his mother on Saturday January 22 after he failed to return home from a Friday night out in the city.

Ben is described as white, around 5’8” tall, of slim build, with light brown hair. At the time of his disappearance he was wearing white Converse high-tops, grey jeans, black t shirt and a grey fleece-type jacket.

items that they believe he had with him when he went missing.

We are in Canada, so really don't think we can be of much help, except to send our purrs and purrayers that he will be found/return safe and sound. Paws crossed and we're sending universal Light to his whole family.

Ben, we can not access the photo. For one thing, our av is blocking the site. Is there some way you can post it differently so we can post it on jff?

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mom already did our post but she was so concerned she edited it with the link to your post. We do have a few followers from the UK so hopefully we can bring this boy home real soon...
