DETECTIVES have been searching the home of Sean Bailey on the Wecock estate.
Police have been focusing on the flat in Robin Gardens where Mr Bailey lived with his mother, Carol Mcalister.
Mrs Mcalister was not available to speak to The News yesterday, but police kept an active presence in Robin Gardens.
A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: ‘The police were round early yesterday morning and then again in the afternoon.
‘They were obviously looking for somebody.’
Neighbours said Mr Bailey’s mother was anxiously waiting to hear news of her son’s whereabouts as police vans maintained a presence outside her home.
A neighbour said: ‘She’s done nothing wrong. She’s gutted.’
Meanwhile, police have also been talking to 16-year-old Danni Lorraine Hartshorn, who is believed to be the girlfriend of Mr Bailey.
An appeal was put out late on Thursday after she was seen with him. Police said she was found safe and well by officers yesterday morning.
The family of the 16-year-old, who live in Fulmer Walk, Wecock, declined to speak to The News.
Elaine Shimbart, who is a Wecock councillor, said: ‘It must be very traumatic and unsettling for people in Dove Close, Curlew Gardens and Robin Gardens.
‘It’s heartbreaking. This is something that should never have happened. I just hope to goodness they track him quickly. Whether he’s still in Wecock, there’s no way of knowing.’
