ROBBIE GIBSON IS STILL MISSING…….
Recent posts on Twitter about Robbie Gibson’s disappearance have included the following:
Steve Broe 12 August at 06:56 · Eastleigh
This man has been #Missing way too long. The efforts to #FindRobbie will continue, though at this point we must hope he is working things out for himself and taking good care of his physical wellbeing. Logic dictates he must have sought help somewhere. All we really want is to be sure and let him be in peace.
Steve Broe also retweeted Berni Excell (@PengePassion):
May our dear friend robertgibson know, wherever he is, that he is deeply loved & greatly missed #FindRobbie
Joe Duggan (one of the leading lights in the search for Robbie) to Crystal Palace Transition Town posted:
Update. Police have met with the man from the Newport IoW CCTV (the one in the press release) and the man from the possible car sighting on same day in Newport and have confirmed neither are Robbie or have anything to do with him apart from some similarities in looks.
The possible Yarmouth Gossips café sighting has also been checked and eliminated from enquiries.
At moment all outstanding CCTV checks on the island have been done, although they are double checking one as it came through a different channel.
Sorry nothing more positive to report at moment, keep sharing and tweeting at hashtag #FindRobbie

Every above ground part of this gorgeous plant is edible – use the leaves and flowers in salads and stir fries, pickle the seeds…. AND the leaves, stems and flowers make a marvelous peppery pesto! I’ll be bringing along plenty of nasturtiums to the stall and have some copies of the pesto recipe to go with them. Come and get them :). I’ve also heard rumors that we’ll have tomatoes, red currants and mint, along with the other produce that our wonderful network of growers regularly bring along. The lovely Adrienne, Alona and Vineeta will be on hand tomorrow to help. See you in the morning!”
