Missing sailor anniversary plea

Judge calls extent of man’s offending ‘truly appalling’

Have your say

WELLWISHERS have marked the six-month anniversary of Gosport sailor Timmy MacColl’s disappearance with a video on YouTube.

Timmy, a Leading Seaman, did not return to HMS Westminster, which he was serving aboard, whilst the ship was visiting the United Arab Emirates in May this year.

The video shows cuttings of newspaper articles about the disappearance of the Gosport-based father-of-two, along with photographs of him with friends and family.

Viewers are asked to sign an online petition, which demands that both the Dubai and British governments do more to answer LS MacColl’s family’s questions.

It currently has 13,022 signatures, with a target of 25,000.

It comes after a press conference held earlier this month by Timmy’s wife, Rachael, at HMS Excellent, on Whale Island, Portsmouth.

She appealed for more information about her husband’s disappearance.
