THE search for a missing engineer is growing as family and friends walk the streets of Portsmouth hunting for him.

Nitin Woocheet, 26, was last seen leaving the Fawcett Inn pub in Southsea on Thursday at about 11pm.

His sister Karishma, 28, along with her parents, husband and friends have been scouring Portsmouth.

Yesterday about eight people were searching throughout Southsea, including the seafront, and in the Guildhall Square area of Portsmouth.

Karishma said: ‘There have been absolutely no sightings of him at all.

‘A lot of people have helped us but we’ve found nothing at all.

‘The police have been searching the streets as well but they have not found anything. We just do not know what has happened to him. No-one knows.

‘This is just awful for our family.

‘It is such a terrible time for all of us. We are desperate to find Nitin.’

Over the weekend Karishma, and her parents, husband and friends have been leafleting the streets.

‘We had a lot of people come down yesterday,’ Karishma said.

‘We have tried to put out as many fliers as we could. We still haven’t heard.’

The distraught family are struggling with Nitin’s disappearance and are appealing to anyone with information to come forward to the police and help.

Distraught Karishma added: ‘We have been everywhere.

‘The fliers are everywhere right now, on Sunday we had seven or eight people and we still have that many people now.’

Mr Woocheet had been celebrating St Patrick’s Day with friends.

He did not answer his phone the following morning and did not arrive at his parents’ house, in London, as usual on Friday afternoon.

His family travelled down to his home in Glasgow Road, Milton, and believe he never returned there on Thursday night.

Mr Woocheet, who is single and works at Airbus as an engineer, is Asian, 5ft 7in, and has brown eyes.

He was wearing a dark blue Superdry polo shirt with a white and purple stripe on the collar and arms. Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting 44160109293 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
