Further appeal for missing Matthew Bourgaize14 January 2020

Guernsey Police are issuing a further, urgent appeal for information that may help locate 29-year-old Matthew Bourgaize who was last seen on the afternoon of Saturday 11 January. Matthew was last seen leaving the Oberlands Centre, on the Princess Elizabeth Hospital grounds, where he was a service user. At the precise moment he was last seen, he was leaving the foyer area of the Oberlands Centre at 1450. It is understood that he had been responding well to treatment during the time he was engaging with Mental Health Services and it had been agreed as part of his care pathway that he be able to see friends and family in the foyer area.

As there have been no further sightings or information relating to his whereabouts so far, Guernsey Police are very concerned for his welfare.

Since he was last seen, Law Enforcement officers and other agencies have been searching relevant locations, examining CCTV and have sought to speak with friends and associates who we had hoped may have had some information but as yet this has brought us no closer to finding Matthew.

Several photos have been shared with the media, and are being circulated on social media including on the Guernsey Police Facebook page. We would encourage the public to look at these and keep their eyes open for Matthew. If anyone has useful information, or believes they have seen him, please contact Guernsey Police immediately on 01481 725111. This is the best way members of the public can support us in our search.

We are in close contact with the family of Matthew who are of course extremely worried. If this message reaches Matthew we would encourage him to make himself known to us, so we can ensure he receives all the care and support he needs.
