There have been no sightings of 41-year-old Robert Duff since he failed to turn up for his daughter’s birthday party on January 12, 2013.

The father-of-two was captured on CCTV withdrawing money from an ATM outside of Sainsbury’s in Holloway Road, Islington at 11.12am but since then he has disappeared into thin air.

Today his family have released a statement appealing for information about his whereabouts.

They said: “We miss Robert terribly and he is constantly in our thoughts.

“The hardest thing is not knowing where he is or what has happened to him. Hearing his voicemail message is all we have.

“Someone must know something about Robert’s disappearance and our whole family is making this plea to urge anyone who does know anything to end this hell for us by sharing any information they know.”

Detective Inspector Lee Dawson, who is investigating Mr Duff’s disappearance, added: “I urge anyone with any information at all on the whereabouts of Robert to call us immediately. This is a very distressing time for Robert’s family so please help them by coming forward with any information that will help us trace Robert, no matter how old this information is or how small it may seem.

“I also appeal to Robert - if you are in any trouble then we can help you, just call your family or the police and let us know you are safe.”

Mr Duff is around 5ft7ins to 5ft8ins tall, of slim build with short brown hair.

He is known to frequent the Holloway, Kentish Town, Islington and Camden areas but could be anywhere.

Anyone with any information about the circumstances of Robert’s disappearance or of his whereabouts should call Brent’s Missing Persons Unit on 020 8733 3734 or 020 8733 3092 - alternatively contact Missing People on 116 000.
