“My dad is 72 years old and he’s reliving the past as my older brother disappeared in 2002, under completely different circumstances.

“It’s breaking us all. I do want to thank everyone for all their help and plead with everyone to not forget his face and to still please help me find him.

“He’s not in any trouble. We all just want him home.”

Shaun was last with their dad on the evening of March, 17.

Laura said: ”When my dad woke up the next day he found the front door key which had been posted through the letter box by Shaun – this isn’t anything unusual.

“But on Thursday police contacted dad because Shaun’s belonging’s were found by a dog walker.

”They were found where we scattered my mums ashes. His phone and his tobacco were found. His wallet is at my dad’s house.
