Appeal three months on since disappearance of Frank McKeever

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Frank McKeever from Islington are renewing appeals for information three months on from the last known sighting of him.

Frank, aged 63 and from the N1 area of Islington, was reported missing on 9 September. He was last seen at around 22:00hrs on Saturday, 28 August walking along Highbury Park, close to the junction of Highbury Grange.

He has not been seen or heard from since. He was last seen wearing a black bomber jacket, black top, dark trousers and black shoes.

This evening, Friday, 26 November, officers from the Highbury Safer Neighbourhood's Team will be in the area where Frank was last seen to hand out leaflets and appeal for information.

The investigation is being led by detectives from the Specialist Crime team due to concerns that Frank has come to serious harm.

A man and a woman who were arrested on suspicion of murder were later released under investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Eastwood, Specialist Crime, said: "It's now three months on from Frank's disappearance and we are still working around the clock to find out what has happened to him.

"Frank's disappearance is very unusual and out of character. He hasn’t been using his phones and hasn’t made use of his bank account, leading us to suspect he has come to serious harm. However, no body has been discovered at this time.

"His family are suffering hugely and we are doing all we can to provide them with support. I'm now asking the public in turn to support us and tell us anything they know that might help us discover what has happened to Frank.

"No piece of information is too small; please make contact and tell us what you know."

In a statement, Frank's family said: "If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of our brother Frank McKeever who has been missing since 28 August, please contact the police urgently as his loved ones are all extremely concerned for his welfare and will support him with whatever help he needs."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote ref CAD3224/13Nov. To remain anonymous, please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at
