Best friend battling terminal cancer pleads for missing Watford man to get in touch
The best friend of a man who has been missing from his home in Watford since June has appealed for him to get in touch as his battle with terminal cancer ‘progresses fast.’
Kenneth Studders, has not been seen since June, 6 , and his school friend, Charles Bayley, has made an emotional plea to his friend because he fears he ‘won’t be here much longer.’
Charles, who now lives in Stockport, said: “When I was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Ken made many journeys from London to see me, it meant a lot and I won’t forget it.
“Ken if you’re reading this, I hope you’re ok and I want you to know that things are progressing pretty fast now, I won’t be here much longer, I could do with a visit mate.
“Also, you should know that we’re all supporting Miko and Oliver [Mr Studders wife and son] saw them at the weekend, gave Oliver a big cuddle, he looks very smart in his uniform, breaks my heart
that you aren’t there to see him.
“Kenneth, I really miss you. Please get in touch, even just to let us know you are ok.”
Mr Studders is 45-years-old and is described as being a white man of a slim build, 5ft 11inches tall with dark brown hair and blue eyes.
He was last seen wearing a blue jumper, blue striped shirt and dark blue denim jeans.
He has links to Bushey, Stafford, London and Farnborough. Other areas he may be are Southend, Ipswich and Cambridge.
His brother Frank Studders and his best friends John O’ Shea from Staffordshire have also appealed for him to get in contact.
Frank, said: “Ken, you are not in any trouble, we are all so worried.
Life has been very difficult for Yumiko and Oliver without you being around. Please just let us know you are safe and have not come to any harm.
“We are always here for you and can help you.”
John, Mr Studdard’s other close friend said: “Ken, so many people miss you – please, please get in touch, even if it is just to say I am OK and you want to start afresh or not come back.
"You are my best mate and I am missing you so much.
“The last few months have been so stressful we are thinking about you all of the time and wondering where you are.”
Anyone with information on Kenneth's whereabouts should contact police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
