As today marks two months since William Taylor’s disappearance, police are re-appealing for the public’s help to trace the Gosmore man.

William Taylor, known as Bill, was last seen at around 9pm on Sunday, June 3 at his home.

Since going missing, he has turned 70 – a milestone birthday that he has not been able to celebrate with his family.

North Herts Chf Insp Julie Wheatley said: “We are continuing to search the farmland surrounding William’s property and extensive enquiries are being carried out to try and find William.

“It’s been two months since he was last seen and his family are extremely concerned. I would like to re-appeal to the public to continue contacting us with reports of any sightings or information that might help us find William.

“In particular, we would like to hear from anyone who might have seen or spoken to William in the months leading up to him going missing.

“If you spoke to him, how did he seem? Did he mention any new hobbies or interests? Did he speak about any places he was intending to visit?

“Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you had contact with William prior to him going missing, and believe that you’ve got information that might help us.

“Any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, could help us understand more about William’s lifestyle and wellbeing before he was reported missing, and this could help us to find him.”

William is described as a white man, around 5ft 11in tall, who is of medium build and has short grey hair.

He was last seen wearing a baby-blue coloured shirt, jeans and black wellies. It is believed that he may be wearing a navy blue boiler suit.

If you have seen William, or have any information which might help officers find him, contact Herts police on 101.

For immediate sightings, call 999. Information can also be report on the public portal https://mipp.police.uk/operation/824.
