Missing Michael Murphy

The family of a missing North Wales man have appealed for him to come home - he's been missing for 4 weeks.

Michael Murphy from Mold was last seen on Wednesday 4th January when his car was found abandoned on the Flintshire Bridge.

The 32 year old had picked up a friend, and they had both gone to start work at the Deeside Industrial Estate.  After clocking in and making a cup of tea, Michael for some reason left work, and parked his car on the bridge.

A huge search operation has been ongoing, with Police dog teams, the RNLI, SARDA, the North West Air Operations Unit and the regional Police Underwater Search Team all looking for Michael in the area around the bridge.

A week after Michael went missing North Wales Police parked Michael's car in the same place as it was found, and stopped drivers to ask if they remember seeing anything.

Many celebrities have been re-tweeting appeal messages on twitter, and Wales captain and Arsenal player Aaron Ramsey recorded his own appeal for Michael to get in touch.


A team of nearly 60 friends, family, and other concerned people have been working to get the message out that Michael is missing, asking businesses to put up posters and ask staff who may be traveling the UK to look out for him.

The family are now also asking people to wear yellow ribbons to keep Michael in peoples thoughts.  Delyn MP David Hanson is backing the campaign, he's even opened his office for family to have post sent to.  

If you would like a yellow ribbon of support, please send a stamped addressed envelope to the following address, stating how many you would like (maximum of 10) to: MISSING MICHAEL MURPHY CAMPAIGN, C/O David Hanson MP Office, 64 Chester Street, Flint, CH6 5DH

North Wales Police continue to appeal to anyone with information or to Michael himself to contact North Wales Police immediately on 101 (if in Wales) or 0300 3300 101.
