Adrian search police now hunting silver car

Investigators searching for missing Adrian Lynch are now seeking a silver car seen around Carrefour Selous just before he disappeared over a fortnight ago.

With the search for the missing 20-year-old now entering its third week, police say that they want to speak to the driver and occupants of the car – thought to be a Citreon Saxo or a Volkswagen Polo.

The car was parked in the area around Club Carrefour at around 11 pm, just over an hour before Adrian was dropped off by a taxi there.

Along with a driver, there were several other young men in the car at the time.

Police say it’s unlikely that Adrian will be found alive after being missing for so long, but have emphasised that there is no evidence at the moment that there was any foul play linked to his disappearance.

They are working on the theory that he was inebriated after a night out, but became disoriented and was suffering from hypothermia after being dropped off in the taxi at around midnight.

The police have been searching with specially trained Victim Recovery Dogs this weekend, after a search effort that has included the rest of the emergency services, sniffer dogs, drone flights and the Channel Islands Air Search Plane.

They have also repeated their call for anyone around St Lawrence who had a covered trailer or container in the area, which has since moved, to contact them.

It’s possible that Adrian found somewhere to shelter and then got trapped.

A statement said: “Police are also requesting to be advised of any covered trailers, insecure large containers or similar that may have been moved from the Carrefour Selous and surrounding areas in St Lawrence, St John, St Mary and north eastern area of St Peter since 5 December.

“This is for the purpose of seeking to explore any potential for Adrian to have climbed onto or into such objected to rest or similar, but may have since been moved from areas of high intensity searching.”

Anyone with any information should call the police on 612612 or on the anonymous Crimestoppers number 0800 555111.
