Detectives are convinced that the answer behind the disappearance of a Lithuanian man from Wisbech lies within the local community and have their re-appealed for information exactly one year after he went missing.
35-year-old Ricardas Puisys was last seen after finishing a shift at the Nightlayer Leek Company in Chatteris on September 26 2015 – and friends and colleagues have not heard from him since.
The police have launched numerous public appeals in a bid to trace him, but believe he may have been murdered after they all came up short.
Detective Chief Inspector, Adam Gallop, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “Ricardas’ disappearance is a mystery.
“I am near positive that the answer to Ricardas’ disappearance lies within the local community – someone knows what has happened to him and I urge them to do the right thing and come forward.

“Any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, could be vital in our inquiry. You do not have to speak to police officers if you are concerned about speaking out, you can pass information completely anonymously via Crimestoppers.”
A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of Mr Puisys’ murder in December of last year, and was later bailed, but his bail was cancelled due to “insufficient evidence.”
