THE family of an Englishman who went missing seven years ago are reaching out to the people in West Cork in the hope that they might have some information as to his whereabouts.

On the night of November 20th 2015, Rory Johnson Hatfield, then aged 29, went missing after a night out in York, and his family are hopeful that he will be found one day.

A relative, who contacted The Southern Star, said he has a lot of Irish friends, as well as a lot of gypsy friends, and they have ‘a weird feeling that he might be over there.’

Samantha Biddolph, a cousin by marriage, believes West Cork is ‘an easy place in which to get lost’ and requested media coverage in the hope that someone might know something and get in touch with the family through the ‘Rory Johnson Is Missing’ Facebook page.

Alternatively, anyone with information surrounding Rory’s disappearance can contact North Yorkshire Police and quote the following reference: 12150207141.

Samantha said her cousin had worked in a remote part of the country so the way of life and the geography of Ireland was well known to the wider family.

She said he was last seen at 12.47am on November 20th 2015, in the City Mills area of the city of York. Since then, no one has seen or heard from Rory.
