Tuesday, May 16, 2023

It is now over five months since Daniel Hives went missing in Lancaster and we continue to appeal for information in our search for him. 

Daniel, 29, was last seen on the evening of Saturday, December 10 last year.

He had left an address in City View, Sidings Close, Lancaster, close to the River Lune and hasn’t been seen since.

Since Daniel’s disappearance, we have searched the river and surrounding area extensively.

The Lancashire Police Dogs unit, the Drone Team and the North West Underwater Search and Marine Unit, have been supported by Lancaster Area Search and Rescue, the National Police Air Service and search dogs from Lancashire Fire and Rescue, in the search.

Daniel is 6ft tall, of slim build, with short brown hair.

The night he went missing, he was wearing a blue Hugo Boss tracksuit and black trainers.

Detective Inspector Adie Knowles of Lancaster CID said: “Despite an extensive investigation and search, we do not know the whereabouts of Daniel.

“It is now six months since he was last seen and his family and friends are rightly very concerned about him.

“We have carried out an extensive search of the area over the last few months and conducted an investigation in our attempts to find Daniel.

“That investigation is continuing, and we renew our appeal for anyone with information about Daniel’s disappearance to contact us.

“We ask again for anyone who was in the area of Sidings Close around 9.30pm on December 10, 2022, to come forward.

“Do you have dashcam footage from the area around the time of Daniel going missing?”

Anyone with information about Daniel’s disappearance, please contact 101 – quoting log 0250 of December 12.
