Appeal after report man was seen entering the sea

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

We are appealing for help in locating a potential witness following reports a man was seen to enter the sea in Blackpool.

We were called at around 11:30pm on Saturday (11 January) by a concerned member of the public who saw a man enter the sea close to the St Chad’s Road area of Blackpool.

Police supported initial searches for the man, whose identity is unknown.

We are now appealing to trace a man who was walking with a child in the St Chad’s area at around 11:30pm. It is believed he had a conversation with the member of the public who made the report, with them talking about what they had seen.

Insp Pete Hannon of Blackpool Police, said: “If you are this man and remember having a conversation with another man about the incident, please come forward. You could hold vital information that could help our investigation.

“The identity of the man reported to be seen in the sea remains unknown. We would ask that if you are concerned about a friend or family member who is missing that you please report this to us.

“Likewise, if you were in the area and remember seeing anything, or have any information at all that could help please call us as soon as possible.”

You can ring 101 quoting log number 1556 of 11 January.
