On their Facebook page, Bude Police has issued the following statement/request for help:
Ricky Gamage is missing from the Bude area and we are seeking help once again with some new lines of enquiry.
1. A phone has been found by Police (amongst other items) in a pile on the beach just North of Crooklets by Wrangle Point. It appears these items may have been collected during a beach clean and piled ready for collection / disposal. We are keen to speak with anyone who can give any information as to where and when this property was collected and by whom.
2. We are also following up an enquiry in relation to a sighting of a male that was seen in Bude on 4th January. We have information that the male linked to this sighting may be staying in a caravan in the Stibb area of Bude. We are seeking information as to the location of ANY places that have any caravans, (especially if it is not one of the local holiday parks) that are being let / rented to persons.
Whilst other enquiries are being investigated, I encourage anyone with any information that can help with any of our enquiries especially the two above to please get in touch with us on 101 quoting Log 897 of 28th December 2019.
Can I take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their help with our enquiries so far. Please share this post.
