DCI Marina Ericson of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, who is leading the search for Mr May, said: “While we have had tremendous support from members of the public to our social media appeals and those made by Chris’s family, what I am still looking for is any information which can assist us finding Chris and providing his family with answers.
