ADRIAN LYNCH - STILL MISSING DAY 13/14







LAST KNOWN SIGHTING OF ADRIEN LYNCH AT 2:17AM 




ADRIAN LYNCH - STILL MISSING - DAY 13/14


OPERATION PANAMA


HOW CAN A YOUNG MAN  VANISH WITHOUT TRACE?


A LOOK AT THE LATEST STATEMENTS FROM THE STATES OF JERSEY POLICE


BELOW I REPRODUCE ARTICLES THAT APPEARED IN THE JERSEY EVENING POST AND THE BAILIWICK EXPRESS.  THIS INCLUDES AN INFORMATIVE Q&A THAT APPEARED IN THE JEP.


DETECTIVE  SUPERINTENDENT (DS)  STEWART GULL

"Rumours and suspicions are rife about possible foul play. Are the police following lines of inquiry on the basis that Mr Lynch may have been the victim of a crime?

As we have said all along, there is no evidence to suggest any foul play.
However, it would be remiss of us not to constantly look at all the possibilities, although we would emphasise there is no evidence or intelligence to suggest anything other than a tragic incident."

We are now reaching the two week mark and nothing. The States of Jersey Police can't rule anything out because they simply haven't found Adrian Lynch. He is still missing. A healthy, fit, young man has simply vanished from SIGHT.  When you look at his movements and CCTV footage there is nothing that suggests to you that after spending 2hrs 20minutes walking around the Carrefour Salous -  Rue de la Gorlarde area (that he is very familiar with)  he suddenly forgets where he lives. Not only that. He has spent 2hrs 20 minutes being spotted  because he hasn't decided to start walking across muddy fields. Why would he? He is always no further than a 25 minute walk from home. Also, if he was to collapse and pass out this would be quite sudden. I can't imagine him walking over muddy wet fields, in the pitch black, looking for a place to do this. I also can't imagine him searching for a place to hide from the elements - he can walk home. He is walking everywhere else.  


The amazing people who have been out at night in the pitch black looking for Adrian Lynch just think how far Adrian could have got with no torch and probably flat shoes? He hasn't walked into a large forest - he would not be far from the road. These ares have been well searched. Unless he got in a car he is still in the main search areas. Hence the Police and search teams are staying around that area. 


I haven't given up hope that Adrian Lynch is still alive.  Until it is proven otherwise - he is still alive. This answer from DS Gull tells us more than a first glance does:

"What is the most likely scenario that has led Mr Lynch’s disappearance and likely death?
We believe Adrian was in an intoxicated state, got disorientated and got into a situation that he couldn’t get out of which we believe has probably led to his death."

That is a powerful statement and leaves the door open to third party involvement. 

Adrian leaves the Regal Construction Yard at 2.17am he can just be spotted walking past the yard next door back towards Carrefour Salous. He isn't stumbling or staggering. He is walking, at pace at times. He then Vanishes. No more sightings. Why? I don't get it.  My guess is that he walks the very short distance to Rue de la Gorlarde. This takes him off the main road (hence no further sightings) and begins his journey home. Anybody who has houses, outbuildings, fields search them and search them again. If he wanted shelter it must be along the route that leads home. We have all stopped and taken a rest on a walk home maybe he just fell asleep (the cold should have woken him up).. Also the CCTV camera would have spotted if a car had passed the yard shortly after Adrian. We haven't heard anything so my guess is the road was quiet at that time. It would be interesting to see if any cars passed the yard when he was known to be walking on the main road. 

I do ask myself why there hasn't been a bigger plea to the people of Jersey to search their properties from the SOJP. As far as I know, and I stand to be corrected, there was never ever a plea for Adrian Lynch to make contact. It feels that it's starting to disappear from the Media as a major incident. Maybe the police need to do more to make sure it remains in people minds. Are the police constrained by budget when it comes to searching? These sort of major incidents cost money.  Are there published TOR's for Operation Panama?

This is horrendous. There is no evidence according to the police that Adrian Lynch was suicidal. His actions would prove this to be the case. CCTV footage proves that he was sound on his feet. He went walkabout in St Mary/St John for 2hrs 20minutes. There is absolutely no evidence that for some bizarre reason he decided to start walking across muddy wet fields in the pitch black (who would) it seems highly unlikely (and why would he) that he found a place to hide in the pitch dark that night because he was cold. I'm sure everything has been checked three times over. Unless he got in a car he must be in that area. Not only that - he could still be alive. 


Never ever give up hope. 

I hope the family don't give up hope that he is alive. Miracles can and do happen. 

For everyone who has been out there in the cold every day don't give up hope. 

Stay Vigilant. 



DS STEWART GULL


JERSEY EVENING POST Q&A


December 16th 2015

As the search for Adrian Lynch moves into its 11th day, we put some of the questions Islanders have been asking to the police

THE investigation into the disappearance of missing electrician Adrian Lynch has sparked one of the largest multi-agency operations in the Island in living memory.
Professional search teams using state-of-the-art technology, as well as scores of volunteers, have been combing the Island for the past 11 days.
However, as of Wednesday morning only Mr Lynch’s phone, wallet and belt have been recovered.
The JEP put a number of questions, some of them based on those being asked online by Islanders, to Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull.

Rumours and suspicions are rife about possible foul play. Are the police following lines of inquiry on the basis that Mr Lynch may have been the victim of a crime?
As we have said all along, there is no evidence to suggest any foul play.
However, it would be remiss of us not to constantly look at all the possibilities, although we would emphasise there is no evidence or intelligence to suggest anything other than a tragic incident.

Is a team of detectives working on the case in addition to the search teams? If so, how many?
A team of four Jersey detectives, and four Guernsey detectives, led by Inspector Steve Langford, are working in support of the search operation.
We also have further officers conducting formal house-to-house inquiries.

The police have revealed that Mr Lynch walked into a stranger’s house on the night he disappeared. Are officers actively looking into whether he went into any other homes?
Officers are conducting house-to-house inquiries to see if anyone has any more information on Adrian’s movements the night he went missing. This can be any potential sighting or interaction.

Is there any evidence that Mr Lynch was the subject of a road traffic collision?
There is no evidence to suggest this.

Was the decision not to mobilise the community to come out to help look for Mr Lynch the right one in retrospect? Why was that decision taken?
We believe this was the correct decision to make, and was made following consultation with one of the national search advisers at the College of Policing.
The reasons behind that decision haven’t changed and have been widely communicated to the public and the media.

It has been suggested that members of the public were not welcome to conduct their own searches for fear of disturbing a potential crime scene. Is this true?
This is not something that we have ever said.
We have reiterated throughout that the best support the local community can provide is to check their own land and outbuildings. We have not wanted to expose the public to any form of harm.
With a joined-up professional multi-agency response we have had sufficient resource to conduct a systematic check of our 28 zoned areas. We would encourage the public to keep their eyes open when about the Island in the event they see anything that might be relevant.
We are again requesting householders in the areas, including around Carrefour Selous, to thoroughly check their land and outbuildings, even if seemingly very secure, for any indication of Adrian’s movements or current whereabouts.
He may have curled himself up into a tight ball and secreted himself somewhere to keep warm.
He was wearing a blue suit, white shirt, white T-shirt and black slip-on shoes on the night he disappeared.

Are you holding back evidence, even for sound operational reasons, that explain what might have happened to Mr Lynch?
No evidence is being held back. We appreciate that many rumours are circulating, especially on social media, which are not helpful to the investigation or, more importantly, Adrian’s family.
Adrian’s last movements have been widely publicised and there is nothing to suggest anything in his life would make him want to disappear.
He is essentially a lovely young man, with a lovely family and everything to live for. We believe this to be a very tragic case.

Mr Lynch’s belt was found in the garden of a property in St Lawrence. Was this the same home that he entered?
No, it wasn’t.
Where exactly was Mr Lynch’s phone and wallet found? Were they found together? Does it look like they were placed there or had they been dropped?
Six Roads. Yes, they were found together. It looks as if they were dropped – a short distance from where he was dropped off by the taxi.

Police are still looking to speak to a driver of a car who apparently spoke to Mr Lynch on the night he disappeared. Do the force have any indication as to who that person might be? Is there a stage when, if that person does not come forward, he or she will be treated as a suspect?
No, we have not spoken to this driver yet. A number of people have suggested who it may be and we are following those leads up. There is nothing to suggest this person is a suspect. We believe Adrian was seen after this by a number of people.

It has been said that he may have been suffering from hypothermia. How likely is this considering the temperature was around 10°C?
We are advised by our colleagues that this is possible. Adrian was only wearing a thin suit and walking around in the cold, having consumed alcohol, which is a vasodilator, which means it causes blood vessels to relax and widen and you therefore lose heat.

What is the most likely scenario that has led Mr Lynch’s disappearance and likely death?
We believe Adrian was in an intoxicated state, got disorientated and got into a situation that he couldn’t get out of which we believe has probably led to his death.

Where does the search go from here?
The gold group are reviewing the search and investigation on a daily basis.

Have or will the search teams begin looking on the coast or in the sea?
Channel Islands Air Search have flown over the north coast on two separate days and there have been searches in the northern parishes.

The search cannot go on forever. Is there a set time or date when emergency services have agreed to end the search?
No – this remains under daily review, subject to professional expertise and judgment in addition to developing intelligence.

Was Mr Lynch on any medication before he disappeared or did he suffer from any mental health issues?
As said earlier, there is nothing in Adrian’s life to suggest he would want to disappear or hurt himself.

Are police tracking his bank accounts with the idea he may have wanted to disappear?
As part of any investigation a person’s bank accounts may be looked at. This has been done in this case. However, there has been no activity on his accounts.

Have you had any clear indication why Adrian was dropped off by the taxi where he was?
Adrian asked the taxi driver to be dropped off just short of the Six Roads junction.
We understand Adrian had been dropped in this area before and walked the final bit of the way home. Not every journey, but he had been known to do it in the past.

Bailiwick Express
Police are still leading the search for missing Adrian Lynch and are planning to make a decision early next week on how to continue the operation.
And one of the searchers has revealed that the missing 20-year-old’s mother has been cooking for the teams who have been out scouring the Island night and day to find the young man.
Police have also issued an updated map covering the area where they are looking for Adrian in the investigation codenamed Operation Panama.
They have emphasised that no decision has been taken to scale down or end the search, but that they will review the status of the operation early next week.

I'm sorry for saying this but I think too much confidence is being put into the police's handling of this "search". Why have they waited two weeks before bringing in search dogs? Why don't they want the public to search for Adrian? Why is the search so narrow and not across the island? He could have gotten into a car and be on the other side of the island in 15 minutes. Your question about budget is a good one how much of a factor is this playing in the investigation? It's all starting to look like a bit of a shambles and I am very sorry for having to think this way but being a father I can only say that I would not be happy with the way things have been handled by the police so far.

Am I correct in saying the police used dogs at Haute De La Garenne? And the dogs alerted to scent of human cadaver?

Could he have lost his phone,wallet and belt in a struggle?
Have they been tested for fingerprints or DNA.Were they found together,were they scattered around or put down neatly?

rico sorda said...

As we enter another week with no sign of Adrian I can't help but think that someone knows exactly what happened that night. From when the story first broke there was something a bit strange about this disappearance. I believe the SOJP got caught out. He will be back. Maybe at a mates, whatever, but you know what I'm saying.

This case has touched me. I think about it daily. A young man has just vanished in Jersey without trace. I still believe he could be alive. I cannot go down that hyperthermia, disorientated, doesn't know where he is unless he had his drink spiked at some stage.

The CCTV footage has thrown a huge hole in the police version of inebriated, disorientated lost scenario.

They need to up the PR on this. They need to engage the public. Get everyone on board. Time to go in houses. Knock on doors and get the dogs in. Turn it up a notch. He obviously isn't out in the open. Hence i think he could still be alive.

Don't give up hope.

Anonymous said...

On one of the first reports on his disappearance,the taxi driver said he was talkative and coherent.
The police are now looking for a silver car with several passengers that was parked up when he disappeared.
I also don't believe the hyperthermia story.With all these people and specialist looking for him over a two week period in what is a relatively small area,and still no sign of him.I think there might be other people involved in his disappearance,maybe even innocently,someone may have given him a lift somewhere else?

Anonymous said...

I can't see how he was coherent. It was reported that his colleague paid the taxi driver up front for the fare. If he'd only been paying as Adrian didn't have any money, wouldn't he have just given him the money to pay himself at the end of the journey. Also another taxi driver interviewed on CTV reported seeing him with mud on his trouser legs. More mention on Facebook of him seen leaning against a hedge and appearing worse for wear. Maybe the taxi driver wasn't even taking that much notice of him, how used must he be to seeing drunk people getting in his taxi. He sounds like a polite well mannered boy, so maybe he was just sitting in the taxi quietly drunk. Also dropping his phone and wallet, I can't actually count how many times I used to do that on a night out after a few too many.
I do agree though that after two hours of wandering around, you would think he might have sobered up at least enough to get his bearings and make it home.
I'm also not buying the hypothermia theory either.

JEP Today

ONE of the biggest manhunts in the Island in living memory was due to be scaled back on Tuesday as the police focus on detective work to trace the missing Adrian Lynch.

As of this evening, multi-agency search parties are due to end their efforts to find Mr Lynch through physical searches.

But the force have stressed that they are committed to finding the 20-year-old and are working to rule out the chances that any third party has been involved in his disappearance.

The electrician is believed to have been last seen at 2.17 am 17 days ago near Thistle Grove commercial estate in St Lawrence after being dropped off by a taxi near Carrefour Selous at about midnight.

The police believe Mr Lynch became disorientated and is still in that area and likely to be ‘curled up in a ball potentially with his suit jacket pulled over his head’.

rico sorda said...

DETECTIVES investigating the disappearance of Adrian Lynch are conducting their operation ‘with all the rigour of a criminal inquiry’ despite no evidence that he has been the victim of a crime, the Island’s most senior detective has said.

The 20-year-old, who is believed to have last been seen near Thistle Grove commercial estate in St Lawrence, vanished following a company Christmas party at the Merton Hotel 17 days ago.

Despite one of the largest manhunts in the Island in living memory only his belt, phone and wallet have been recovered.

As of the end of Tuesday, physical searches for the electrician will stop but a police investigation, codenamed Operation Panama, led by a small group of detectives under the charge of Detective Inspector Steve Langford, will continue working to trace Mr Lynch.

This what I said in my blog posting.

"Adrian leaves the Regal Construction Yard at 2.17am he can just be spotted walking past the yard next door back towards Carrefour Salous. He isn't stumbling or staggering.

This is what the Police said today.


CTV

Police searching for missing Jerseyman Adrian Lynch say they want to speak to every driver who passed Thistlegrove on La Grande Route de St Laurent on the night he went missing.

The force says is believes 34 motorists drove by there between 11:50pm on Friday 4th December and 4:45am the next morning, when CCTV footage shows someone believed to be Adrian in the area.
Officers want to speak to all of those people, even if they have already spoken to them before, as they say they could have some information to help them in their search.

Yesterday, police announced they were scaling back the search for the 20-year-old electrician, who disappeared after a work Christmas party.

They are still appealing to the driver and/or passengers of a vehicle spotted on the road opposite David Hick Antiques at around 12:20am, speaking to a man believed to be Adrian.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the States of Jersey Police, on 01534 612612.

Jersey Police are appealing for the occupants of a vehicle seen in the Carrefour Selous area on the night Adrian Lynch disappeared, to come forward.

A small, silver car likened to a Citeron Saxo or VW Polo was parked outside Club Carrefour at around 11pm on 4th December.
Several males were seen inside the car at that time and police would like to establish its whereabouts in the following hours.
20-year-old Adrian Lynch went missing in the early hours of 5th December in the Carrefour Selous area.
Police are also requesting to hear about any covered trailers or large containers that have been moved from St Mary, St John, St Lawrence and the north eastern area of St Peter since 5th December.End

I'm not sure why they haven't put a call out for these 34 motorists long before now.

When they did the road check the following friday after Adrian Disappeared they stopped 144 cars between 12.00am and 3.00am. Where the hell did all these cars appear from?

Dropping the phone and wallet is a curious one for me. You can unintentionally drop one but both? For a start you very rarely carry both in the same pocket. Especially if you are wearing suit trousers as this just feels uncomfortable. It's just a natural reaction. You would spread the load. Also, no one intentionally leaves their phone behind. You can leave it behind in a cab if it falls out of your pocket but not when on foot.

Mobile phones are connected to us. They are in our hands every 2 minutes. They are our source of connection. I cannot understand how Adrian would be walking around for 2hrs 20 minutes without missing his phone or wallet. Did he have an I phone and would it have been traceable? We are never off the damn things. Especially the younger generation. It doesn't make sense. It doesn't feel right. The fact is that Adrian is still missing. Why discard phone and wallet?

Adrian is still out there waiting to be found. I'm still not giving up hope that he is still alive for the simple reason that he hasn't yet been found. Yes the odds are stacked against him but this is just very very strange.

Why scale down the search when there is another 9 parishes within pissing distance?

Stuey's bottom boils said...

"Why scale down the search when there is another 9 parishes within pissing distance?"

Because the Police only have so much time and resources.
If you ran the operation they would be digging up coconut shells, bedsprings, lime pits and using useless £650 a day sniffer dogs whilst giving ridiculous press conferences every 6 hours.

Anonymous said...

I understand that the States of Jersey Police under advisement from specialists in the UK confined the search to key Parishes in the immediate vicinity of the last siting of Adrian. I also understand that the search was not extended to the remaining parishes due to lack of evidence in support of an extended search. Having made a thorough search of the key parishes, it is my assumption that the police are confident that Adrian is not to be found within this area. Adrain by accounts was vacant and disorientated, and so I ask the question as to whether he was he capable of walking far enough to be outside the search area? And so by extension if Adrian is not to be found within the search area, then is it reasonable to suggest that he is to be found somewhere outside it? I reference my earlier post where I suggested that I consider it a possibility that person(s) are involved in this disappearance. A wallet and a mobile phone are two items that have one thing in common, they are sources of identification. Either someone (Adrian) does not want to be found, which leads an investigation down one path. Or someone does not want Adrian to be found. People do not just vanish without a trace.

If Adrian's phone doesn't shed light on his disappearance then one can only conclude that something very random happened. We must trust the police.

THE occupants of two cars which were seen on a St Lawrence road at the same time missing Adrian Lynch was allegedly spotted in the area are being sought by the police.

At 2.23 am on Saturday 5 December a vehicle was seen driving north past the Thistle Grove commercial estate on Grande Route de St Laurent. Six minutes earlier a person believed to be Mr Lynch was seen walking south past the area.

The make and model of the vehicle is unknown, but the States police believe it was a ‘high roofed car’, possibly dark coloured.

At 2.34 am a vehicle believed to be a taxi drove south past the area.

In a statement, the States police said: ‘Police are very keen to identify and speak with the occupants of these vehicles as it’s possible they may have seen Adrian or have some information which may be of relevance to the inquiry, however insignificant that might appear to them to be.

‘There are also still a number of other vehicles that passed Thistle Grove between ten to midnight and a quarter to five in the morning that police are yet to identify and we repeat our request for drivers and occupants to make contact.’

Mr Lynch (20) disappeared on the night of 4 December after attending a work’s party at the Merton Hotel.

Anyone with information is being asked to phone the States police on 612612 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

I have heard that his scent was picked up on the road by a sniffer dog and then suddenly disappeared,indicating he got into a car. Time to stop pussy footing around and start searching island wide and take the dogs around the grounds of homes and cars.

Thought you hated and distrusted the Police Sorda?

rico sorda said...

Then you think wrong.

I don't hate anyone.

The truth off the matter is this. A twenty year old man has been missing for three weeks now. Vanished. St Mary, St John and St Lawrence have been searched endlessly with all services plus specialised equipment. Adrian Lynch is still missing. He must have found somewhere incredibly hard to find (in the pitch dark) or there is third party involvement. You don't just vanish. You don't walk around for over two hours and then decide to voluntarily vanish. He had stayed on the roads and lanes - why then decide to start going across fields and god knows what else in suit and shoes. I don't see it. My own personal opinion is when spotted by CCTV camera at 2;17 walking towards Carrefour Salous he had decided to start heading home. He turns into Rue de la Gorlarde. It takes him off the main road. Hence he doesn't get spotted again when the first car passes Thistle Grove heading towards St John at 2;23. The answers to Adrian's disappearance lies in Rue de la Gorlade - in my opinion. The Carrefour area is well lit at night. With passing Taxis and the like I think he would have been spotted. No one spots him. All is going quite. Even that twenty minute walk home there is a chance he would have been spotted once but nothing. Why walk across muddy wet fields? Why? This is why I believe there is still hope he is alive. This is so strange that the answer must be simple. He wasn't abducted by aliens. I really hope that the Police have some solid leads and are keeping them close to their chests because if they haven't then some serious questions will need to be asked. Why know proper Island Wide search for one.

My feeling is that he is still in one of those three parishes. I would ask permission to enter every property on his route home with dogs.

Anonymous said...

Even now I hear people say in discussion how can a person go missing so close to home, a twenty minute walk is not that far - I did some dowsing with my pendulum and got Bouley Bay Area - but that is a long way so I dismissed that. Anyway it was worth a go even though I am no corer at that, but anything and everything is worth a go even mediumship or clairvoyance now just to get a lead.

rico sorda said...

How the Lynch family are getting through Christmas god only knows. I'm sure they would welcome anything that gets them some form of closure on this horrendous disappearance of their son Adrien.

The fact that we are now at three weeks and nothing is worrying.

Im also worried that its slipping from the local media news bulletins etc etc. This must remain a lead story. It must remain in the minds of the populace.

Anonymous said...

I find it very hard to believe his disappearance is down to him being drunk.It is must be almost impossible for a team of experts with all the equipment plus many ordinary people not to be able to find a drunk man.This leads me to think of two or more possible scenarios 1.Other persons involved 2.Drugs.What if someone picked him up an argument broke out in the car and they kicked him out somewhere else?What if he passed out in the car and they dumped him somewhere in a panic,like in the recent case of the young man from Vic college left in a country lane.
Drugs.If he was more than drunk,which seems to be the case someone must have spiked his drink (unlikely),or supplied him with some.Nobody takes drugs alone,what of the other people he was with that night?There must be other people involved in this one way or the other.Why has the owner of the silver car not come forward yet.Too many unanswered questions.

What if he has had a disagreement with some peers and says he is getting a cab home from his xmas do. Hypothetically he could of dropped his wallet and phone on purpose as he may have owed money.Who knows.So things have got out of hand and he has been beaten up and then is disorientated.There was news he went into a house.For help maybe.Then this tall car they are looking for may have knocked him onto the road and panicked and put him into said vehicle and from there god only knows.No one just disappears without trace on a small Island.My heart go out to his whole family and a big Thanks to everyone so far that has done there best to try and find this young man and not forgetting our Police and Detectives and all other agencies involved.Please Please Please let him be safe somewhere.Adrian Lynch this whole Island is wanting you back where you belong with your family.If by some miracle you read this you are in no trouble whatsoever sweetheart.Is time now you were found.If there is a God please put an end to this please.

You are kidding me.

Can you post the JEP piece as a comment?

I thought that would have been done ages ago. Do they still believe that he was seeking shelter?

rico sorda said...

DETECTIVES are investigating more than 250 lines of inquiry into the disappearance of Adrian Lynch – including questioning local mechanics about possible road accidents and carrying out analysis of his financial affairs.

A team of six detectives are dedicated to the case, codenamed Operation Panama, and part of their investigative work is contacting local garages to see if cars have been brought in for repair with damage that may have been caused by a collision.

The garage enquiries, analysis of Mr Lynch’s bank accounts and interviews with his close friends and family are just some the lines of inquiry being pursued by police.

Speaking to the JEP, Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull stressed that the police were merely ‘re-assuring themselves’ that nothing potentially criminal, such as a road accident, has contributed to Mr Lynch’s disappearance.

He added that the police still believe that the former Les Quennevais student has most likely become disorientated, suffered from hypothermia and stopped in an area where emergency services have been unable to find him. Only his belt, phone and wallet have been recovered.

Get someone over here that knows what they are doing. They spent a month looking over three parishes. Where do they think Adrien walked to in suit and shoes. Did he build himself a den? Stopped in an area where they can't find him. That's an understatement. Get looking in houses with dogs. He isn't hibernating until spring for gods sake. Every minute of every day counts and what exactly are they doing. And what of this other man who is missing? Any information on him?
