Cambridgeshire Constabulary Operation Laysan
Appeal for information regarding the disappearance of Ricardas Puisys
Details of Incident
Police investigating the disappearance of a Lithuanian man from Wisbech in 2015 have new information suggesting he may be alive.
Ricardas Puisys, who was 35 when he went missing, was last seen at his place of work at Nightlayer Leek Company in Chatteris on the 26th of September 2015.
Despite multiple public appeals to find him, we have been unable to trace him and believe he may have been murdered.
We have followed up a number of inquiries but we still don’t know what has happened to him. This investigation began as a missing person inquiry, however very early on it was clear there were no signs of life and we were concerned Ricardas had been murdered.
We had information that Ricardas had come to some harm which resulted in one person being arrested on suspicion of murder however there was insufficient evidence to charge and are no longer being investigated.
To this day we have not found his body, nor have we found any evidence telling us he is alive, that was until the summer of 2018.
A Facebook account has been set up in his name and photographs of who we believe to be Ricardas have been posted. We have been trying to make contact with the person behind this account, but are yet to establish whether Ricardas is alive.
We are urging you to contact us if you have any information whatsoever about Ricardas’ whereabouts, no matter how insignificant it may seem.
Whether Ricardas is alive or not, someone knows what has happened to him. Please do the right thing and come forward.
