Police have offered a £20,000 reward for information regarding the murder of a doorman on the 15th anniversary of his disappearance.

Officers who have so far been unable to solve the mystery surrounding James Harmon believe key information lies within a "criminal fraternity" in east London, that the doorman was involved in.

Although his body has never been recovered, police now believe he was murdered shortly after he was last seen on Saturday, January 24th, 1998.

The investigation is focused on Jimmy Harmon's lifestyle and in 1998 he was well known as a doorman at a number of east London clubs and pubs.

Mr Harmon worked as a mechanic and also part-time as a doorman at the Robin Hood Public House in Longbridge Road, Dagenham.

He was last seen when he left his girlfriend's home in Romford to visit a friend in Rainham at around 3am on the day he went missing.

He was due to return at 8pm but has not been seen since.

His car was later found abandoned in Bexley Gardens off Barley Lane, near to King George's Hospital in Goodmayes.

The Metropolitan Police Service is offering the reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for the disappearance and murder of Mr Harmon who was 30 when he went missing.
