Ipswich/Hollesley: Nicki Durbin’s campaign to Find Luke

IN the wake of Luke Durbin’s disappearance his mum Nicki launched a campaign to find her son.

Spreading the word far and wide, she created the Find Luke website, led a major poster campaign and appeared on national television.

Ms Durbin even took part in a parliamentary debate alongside Kate McCann, mother of missing Madeleine, on missing people.

Speaking previously of her despair, Ms Durbin told the EADT: “He (Luke) had been working at a greengrocer’s in Aldeburgh and was in such good spirits. It makes absolutely no sense.”

Mr Durbin was on a night out with friends on Thursday, May 11, 2006, and had been at what was then Zest nightclub.

His disappearance was out of character and he did not return home to collect any personal belongings – including a mobile phone he had left at a friend’s house and his wages.
