Scores of volunteers have been offering their support to look for him in places around Lower Stoke and Grain Road in Hoo.

Yesterday, friends and family met in Grain Road to continue their search for Liam, who was last seen in Stoke Road in Hoo on Saturday, July 22 at 1am.

On Monday (July 31), a group met in Stoke Airfield, with the owner of the site using his plane to scour from overhead. The pilot has since made 10 flights and taken aerial photos of the land and ditches in the hope something sheds light on Liam’s whereabouts.

Another search is taking place this Wednesday between 11am and 5pm, with people meeting in Lower Stoke Village Car Park.

Maps and radios will be provided and looking in ditches is being marked as a priority.

Posters have been placed in shop windows in Rochester and Strood and flyers are being posted through doors.

The social media page is helping to coordinate the search by asking walking groups, landowners and any volunteers who are looking in particular areas to post details of places already covered.

The group has also made 50 laminated flyers to put up in neighbouring streets.

Those close to the 22-year-old fear he could have suffered a head injury and may be disorientated.

They are asking people to look in their outbuildings and surrounding areas.

Liam was last seen near North St Farm in Stoke Road, Hoo, wearing a black hat, black hoodie, black shorts, and black Puma trainers.

He is white, of medium build and has short hair and a short beard.

Detective Inspector Paul Fewtrell said: “Officers have searched relentlessly for Liam.

“They have carried out house-to-house inquiries, CCTV reviews, and undertaken searches in numerous relevant locations, assisted by drones, police helicopters, and the dog unit.

“We are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare and continue to request public support in locating Liam.”

Anyone who sees Liam is asked to call 999 quoting reference number 23-0247.
