The family of missing Alexandra man Wayne Hammond has made a public plea for information on his whereabouts.

He has not been seen, or made contact with his family or friends, since the morning of Monday 1 November.

In a statement, Wayne Hammond’s family said the last 11 days have been harrowing.

“Wayne is a loving, caring and engaged husband, father, son and friend. Not knowing where he is, and if he is okay is inexplicably hard.”

“We want to thank our local community for being there for us.  We have been overwhelmed with support from both people who know us as a family, and many who don’t.”

“We are taking things day by day and want more than anything to have Wayne home with us. To the people who have come forward to offer information, we want to thank you.”

“To anyone who thinks they may know something that can help, we ask you to please come forward.”

“Even if you don’t think what you have to tell Police is relevant, we’d rather discount the information than not know about it.’

“As a family, we are focusing all of our energy on locating Wayne.”

Wayne Hammond’s employer, Rory McLellan has also released a statement saying “Wayne has worked for us at McLellan’s and Rockgas for three years and is a valued and respected member of our close-knit team.”

“Not having him here each day is extremely hard for us to process. Wayne and I have literally worked side by side since he began with us.”

“I regard him as both a good friend and a fantastic team member. On behalf of all of his colleagues, and alongside his family, we want to encourage anyone with information to please get in touch with police.”

Anyone with information, including Dash camera footage from Monday 1 November on the Alexandra-Clyde Road and surrounds, specifically Earnscleugh Road is asked to contact Police.
