Terry McSpadden, of Elm, was last seen in the early hours of March 2, 2007.

He had spent the evening of March 1 in the Locomotive pub in Wisbech and then went to the town’s Tesco supermarket just before 1am before returning to his home in Outwell Road, Elm.

Police said the disappearance was completely out of character for the father-of-two and despite detailed searches of both the local area and Mr McSpadden’s home and numerous missing person appeals, he has never been found.

Leading the investigation, Detective Inspector Marie James of the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team said: “While Terry’s disappearance was

initially treated as a missing person’s inquiry, we have long since believed that Terry is no longer alive and

his death was as the result of

foul play. His body has never been found.

“We absolutely know there are individuals out there who know how and why Terry has disappeared. We also believe there are other people with important information who may have previously not felt able to come forward.”

Mr McSpadden used to cycle everywhere and his black mountain bike, repainted from pink, has also never been found.

His stepmother Susan Rolfe said: “Terry’s children miss their daddy and really want him to come home. It is like living a nightmare. Somebody must know something that will help us establish what happened seven years ago.”

Crimestoppers is offering the reward of up to £5,000 for information passed on directly to the charity anonymously on 0800 555 111 that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this offence.

Information given directly to

the police or via the Crimestoppers online form will not be liable for the reward.

People can also contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team by dialling 101.
