West Ham United appeals for help to find missing supporter

Jack Morrad


West Ham United urges supporters to share any information they might have to help Essex Police locate missing Hammers fan and Season Ticket Holder Jack Morrad.

Jack has not been seen since leaving Colors nightclub in Basildon at 2am on Sunday 23 December.

The 28-year-old, who was wearing a blue Christmas jumper, a red Santa hat, pale blue jeans and white trainers, had been at London Stadium the previous afternoon, where he had watched West Ham take on Watford in the Premier League, before returning to the town.

A fundraising page set up by Jack’s friends to aid the search has raised more than £4,200 since his disappearance. To make a donation, click here.

“We have searched his last known location, Gloucester Park, and have not been able to find him,” said a friend of Jack, who set up the JustGiving page.

“The search for Jack goes on but we need your help. His Mum and family are devastated and we need to find him.”

Essex Police are working closely with his family to see which route Jack might have taken on leaving the club. They have also searched nearby parks in Basildon, made door-to-door inquiries and have appealed for witnesses, CCTV and dash cam footage which may have recorded Jack’s movements after he left the nightclub.

“We are issuing a new photo of Jack Morrad, who has gone missing in Basildon,” an Essex Police spokesperson confirmed. “The 28-year-old was last seen leaving Colors night club in the Southernhey area at around 2am on Sunday 23 December.

“He was wearing a blue Christmas jumper with a deer on the front, a red santa hat, pale blue jeans, and white trainers. He is described as white, 5ft 11ins tall, slim, with short brown hair.

“We are concerned for his welfare and need to find him to make sure he is OK. If you have seen him or have any information about where he is, please call us on 101 quoting incident 262 of 23 December.”
