Boyfriend of missing girl joins wood hunt


Summary of story from The Sun, March 22, 2011.

Kevin Reape, the boyfriend of missing woman Sian O’Callaghan, joined worried friends, family and concerned locals to scour woods in Southern England today.

More than 400 volunteers joined the search for clues as it emerged that a mystery donor  had offered £20,000 for information which might lead the police to the missing woman.

The  young woman disappeared after a night out with pals at the Suju nightclub in Swindon, Wiltshire. Her mobile phone signal was last picked up at 3:24 am on Saturday in the dense wood, near Marlborough.

Last night Wiltshire Police released footage of 5ft 3in Sian in the nightspot in a bid to jog revellers’ memories about what she was doing and who was with her.

The brunette, who has a distinctive asymmetric haircut, is seen casually walking from the club alone in a bolero jacket and carrying a handbag with a beige flower.

Det Supt Steve Fulcher said that Reape, who had spent Friday at Cheltenham races, was “absolutely not” a suspect.
