Family’s relief after Whittlesey man found safe and well

A WHITTLESEY man who went missing before Christmas turned up safe and well on New Year’s Eve.

Concern had been growing for Paul Smith who had recently been living in both Peterborough and Wellingborough.

The 37 year-old disappeared on Christmas Eve and prompted a massive hunt by his family over the holiday period.

His mum Sandra lives in Newlands Road, Whittlesey and had described his disappearance as out of character.

She said: “Christmas did not happen for us this year.”
