Police appeal for public's help to trace angler

Posted: 23/01/2007 20:57:18

Police have put out appeal for the public's help following the possible disappearance of an angler in the Yeovil area.

It follows the discovery of a fishing rod, tackle box, fishing bag and net on the bank of the River Yeo in the Flushing Meadow area near to the sewerage works.

The fishing equipment was discovered at about 2.45pm and no-one has returned to collect it. There is no identification or name tags on the fishing equipment.

Police have carried out a search in the surrounding area, supported by the police helicopter and the fire service, including checking cafes and public houses in the area but have been unable to locate the angler.

Police would like to hear from the angler or anyone who may know of someone who intended fishing in the River Yeo this afternoon who has not returned home.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Yeovil Police on 0845 4567000.
