The family of missing 33-year-old has renewed an appeal to find him after he went missing three years ago.

Carl Hodges’ family has joined the charity, Missing People, to mark the third anniversary of Carl’s disappearance.

Mr Hodges went missing in Northwood, Middlesex on February 3 2016, but it is thought he may have then travelled to Norwich and on to Lowestoft.

Eddie Hodges, Carl’s father, said “We are at a loss to express our frustration with the situation we find ourselves in.

“Since being supported by the charity Missing People we know how many more families have the same feelings year-on-year.

“We just hope the year 2020 gives us all a clearer vision of the problem just under the radar.”

Carl is described as white, 6ft tall and of medium build. He had blonde, short, straight hair when he went missing and was last seen wearing a black and burgundy fleece, grey trousers, a red baseball cap and white trainers, although he may have had a change of clothes with him at the time.

Eddie added that Carl, a Royal Mail employee at the time of his disappearance, was last seen boarding a bus in Norwich that was heading to Lowestoft.

Missing People publicity coordinator Ian Roullier said: “Carl, if you are reading this, please call or text us on our free phone number, 116 000.

“It’s confidential and we can’t trace your call. We just want to provide you with the support you need and help you to be safe.

“The helpline is here to support people who are missing or thinking of going missing and their loved ones who are left behind.”

If anyone has seen Carl, they should contact Missing People anonymously by calling 116 000 or by emailing or call the police on 101.
