The mother of missing Warren Ullyett has pleaded for anyone with information on his whereabouts to come forward as she enters a second month since his disappearance.
Rani Ullyett last saw her 28-year-old son in Herne Bay on November 2.
Known to his friends as ‘Hightower’ because he stands 6ft 7ins tall, his mother says he has had a troubled past but was turning his life around.
Friends and family have been running a widespread Facebook campaign to find him.
“Warren’s been a little minx in the past,” she said. “He’s been at Her Majesty’s Pleasure about three or four times.
“I’ve always been in touch with him. I was the one who would go to visit him inside because his dad couldn’t.”
The death of Mr Ullyett’s father last year prompted Warren to try to straighten his life out.
He was saving money earned through cash-in-hand work around Herne Bay to fund a move away from Kent.
“He was quite fragile,” Mrs Ullyett said. “Warren’s mind wasn’t in a good place. He suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder because he had been shot eight years ago.
“He liked to go out for walks with his dog. He felt safe doing them. I’d bought him food and some other bits and he’d take his rucksack with them in. That’s all in my shed, though, he hasn’t taken them with him.”
The Ullyett family can’t understand where he could be or what he could be doing because his bank accounts are frozen, he is without a working mobile phone and there have only been a handful of unverified sightings of him since November 2.
“I just want to know he’s safe,” his mother said. “He’s always been nice, he’s always been gentle. He’s my baby.”
Police say they are aware of a missing man from the Herne Bay area and inquiries are ongoing in an effort to locate him.
Mr Ullyett is heavily tattooed, slim and has short hair.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call Missing People on 116 000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
