A MOUNTAIN rescue team and mounted officers have been among the fresh resources put into looking for a missing dad.
Peter Jackson’s car was found at Cawfields Quarry, near Hadrian’s Wall, at Haltwhistle in Northumberland on Tuesday night after a member of the public recognised it from the police appeals to try to track him down following his disappearance.
Northumbria Police has been carrying out checks of the quarry, along with the surrounding countryside, with assistance from Durham Constabulary.
The mounted officers and mountain rescue team joined a marine unit and sniffer dogs and their handlers during Mr Jackson.
The efforts are expected to resume today and follow a similar scale and schedule to yesterday’s work.
Officers found a number of items inside the grey Ford Focus C Max which could help in the investigation.
Mr Jackson 38, a father of two boys, left his home in Weybourne Lea, East Shore Village in Seaham, at 8.20am on Monday, November 11. The alarm was raised after he failed to turn up to his job as a pro golfer at Castle Eden Golf Club.
His wife Alexis, 36, has pleaded with him, or anyone who knows where he is, to get in touch.
Police have said they are concerned for his welfare.
As part of the appeal to try to find him, officers asked people to call if they had seen the grey car, registration FY05 CKD.
Mr Jackson is described as stocky and was last seen wearing a dark zip-up top and dark trousers.
Anyone with information is asked to call Durham Constabulary on 101.
