POLICE investigating the disappearance of a man from a campsite in Buxton 10 years ago are renewing their appeal for information.

On July 7, 2003 a man using the name of William Kane booked into the site at Grinlow, near Ladmanlow, Buxton.

He paid for two nights’ camping but has not been seen since then.

His two-man Eurohike tent was left erected at the site and his belongings were still inside.

Sergeant Steve England, from Buxton’s Vulnerable Persons Unit, said: “Mr Kane’s disappearance resulted in a significant search at the time but we were unable to locate him.

“We are as anxious now as we were then to find out what happened and to speak to anyone who knows or may have seen him since July 2003.

“The internet now allows us to have a much further reach and my hope is that this renewed appeal may be seen by someone who knows a William Kane, who could have been in the Buxton area back then.”

Mr Kane was described at the time as being about 40, 5ft 6in, of slight build and wore a large Australian-type hat and dark glasses.

Some of the equipment left in his tent included a Eurohike Wilderness 55 rucksack, a Eurohike camping mat and a Vango Fireblazer 250 sleeping bag.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or the UK Missing Persons Bureau on 0845 000 5481.
