Essex Police has thanked the 80 officers and volunteers who helped in a search for missing Chris May today.

Relatives and friends of Mr May today joined police, officers from the Essex Special Constabulary and members of volunteer search and rescue groups for searches of areas around the hamlet of Fairstead where Chris’s car was found abandoned on May 25.

Mr May, of St Mary’s Road, Kelvedon, was last seen on May 25, the day before he was due to start a new job with a friend building tennis courts.

His father, Peter May, was the last person to see the 28-year-old; he visited his father’s home in Coggeshall that morning.

Mr May’s car was later found abandoned in Troy’s Chase, Fairstead.

DI Anne Cameron of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “We would like to thank everyone who took part in the search.

“We have checked all the areas designated by our specialist search officers but nothing of interest was identified.”
