The family of John Allen, who went missing from Ravenglass earlier this week, has issued a statement thanking people for their help in the search.

John Allen, 76, from Preston, is described as 5ft 8, of slim build and bald.

He was wearing a green fleece, green suede trousers and walking boots and was last seen at Ravenglass Estuary at around 9am on April 28.

Cumbria Police, coastguard, Cumbria Fire and Rescue, CNC, National Police Air Service, and mountain rescue teams have been involved in the search.

Mr Allen’s family said: “13 members of the Allen family from Preston enjoyed a memorable few days last weekend in the beautiful Eskdale valley.

“John, a keen, capable, mountain walker, and the most senior Allen, took his dog for its usual morning walk on Monday morning - something he loved to do. It appears that for some unknown reason John got into difficulties whilst walking near the River Esk Estuary around Ravenglass and subsequently never returned from his walk.

“The search continues throughout the area and the family wish to express their deep gratitude to wider family, friends, the local community and numerous emergency organisations, in particular Cumbria Police and Coastguards, for their unrelenting, ongoing support at this most difficult time.”

Anyone who may have seen someone matching this description is asked to call Cumbria Police on 101 and ask for the duty sergeant at Whitehaven Police Station quoting log number 59 of April 28.
