Shoreham man believed missing in Spain
14 December 2012
Police are concerned for the welfare of Shoreham man Robert
Golden, 58, who has failed to return from a holiday in Spain.
He flew on his own to Seville on 5 November and had bought
a return flight on Easyjet to return on 19 November.
However Robert, who has a passion for trekking, didn't board the
return flight and hasn't been in touch with his brother or his
colleagues in London where he works in IT.
His brother Barry said: "I'm really worried. I'm really missing
him and want to see him back home.
"Robert loves walking and the outdoors. It is worrying that he
can be away for that length of time and not use his bank cards. The
last time was 10 November somewhere in Spain. I wonder what he
is living on?
"I would appeal for him to get in touch."
Detective Inspector Rob Walker said: "We are getting
increasingly concerned for Robert. He was seen by neighbours at the
beginning of November leaving his home with a large backpack.
"He is a keen walker and mentioned to a friend about treking to
Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz and Jerez for about 10 to 12 days. However
he failed to return to work as expected and he was reported missing
on 23 November. We are in liaison with the British Embassy and are
issuing the appeal to the media in Spain.
"I would ask Robert to get in touch to say he is safe and well.
I would also urge anyone who may recognise him from his travels in
Spain to contact Sussex Police on 101 (0044 1273 475432 from
abroad) quoting serial 804 of 23/11."
