Five years after he was last seen, the family of David Skerrett are still on the search.

Mr Skerrett was originally from Rowley Regis, in the West Midlands, before moving to Bognor Regis. He lives alone in a flat on Cavendish Road, where he was last seen on June 15 2019. Although Mr Skerrett was in regular contact with his mother before he went missing, he went silent in late June 2019, not long after he was last seen.

David’s family say his disappearance is extremely out of character, and they are extremely concerned for his welfare.
