Family and friends appeal for missing Hackney man to return home

Adam Connolly’s close friend Jack Savidge of Friendly Fires also launches a Facebook campaign

Fears are growing over the welfare of a 29-year-old from Clapton who has been missing since Wednesday morning.

Adam Connolly, 29, a woodworker, was last seen on his bike in Prout Road, Clapton.

His disappearance is understood to be completely out-of-character.

His friend Matthew Collins, 36, of Clapton, said: “Adam has a very close-knit group of friends and family, who all love him dearly.

“It’s very hard for us not knowing where he is, and we are appealing for him to come back home.

“He’s a very shy, private person and his disappearance is out-of-character.”

Close friend Jack Savidge, of Friendly Fires, has launched a missing person appeal on the band’s Facebook page and via Twitter.

His father John Connolly, of Horsham, said: “I’ve been amazed by the coordinated activities his friends have brought to bear through Facebook, posters, Twitter and social media.”

Adam is approximately 5’8”, medium build with short black hair, a short black moustache and stubble.

He was last seen wearing blue suede trainers, a black bomber jacket and dark jeans. He was also carrying a black shoulder bag.

He was riding a vintage Roberts bike described as pistachio green with short black straight handlebars and with a wooden mud flap on the rear.

He has two small tatoos - one with two triangles on his right elbow region and another of a crescent on his left forearm.
