ROBBIE’S DISAPPEARANCE FEATURED ON THE ONE SHOW
The disappearance of campaigner Robbie Gibson featured on BBC TV’s The One Show last night (Monday).
Robbie’s friend Joe Duggan told the programme: “The community response has been amazing and moving.
“It’s very hard to switch off. “You’re dealing with a lot of mystery. “Your mind is in overdrive all the time trying to look at the different possibilities.”
Recalling how Robbie had spent 10 days in Carnegie library, Herne Hill as one of the protesters occupying the building Joe told The One Show he felt the campaign had an impact on Robbie.
“He looked more vulnerable and a few days later went missing.
“I hope he knows how much people really care about him.”
Robbie was last seen on the Isle of Wight on the day of his disappearance. A keen walker, the Isle of Wight is a favourite holiday destination of the family.
The Metropolitan Police have released an image of a man of similar appearance who was seen in the Isle of Wight. Officers have been unable to establish if the man is Robbie.
Police would like to speak to the person, who was approached by a member of the public in Newport, Isle of Wight on 11 July.
The man walked from High Street, Newport into Castlehold Lane, Upper Pyle Street and then into Post Office Lane.
Anyone with any information regarding Robbie – or Rebecca, a missing woman also featured in the programme, is asked to call their local police on 101 or call the charity Missing People on 116 000.
