Hampshire Police Concerned for Welfare of Missing Man

Published: 16th June 2012 17:47

 Police in Hampshire are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a man who has not been seen since Friday June 8.

Ben Hilton, 33, of Sopwith Road, Eastleigh, had attended a wedding reception at the Roebuck pub in Winchester.  Afterwards he was then seen by a friend to board a train at Winchester railway station at 9.16pm.

It has since been established that Mr Hilton arrived at Portsmouth Harbour railway station the same evening where
he was seen on CCTV getting off a train at. He was alone.

Mr Hilton was then seen on the staff side of the Wightlink catamaran jetty at Portsmouth Harbour at 10.18pm.
Detective Inspector Dave Morgan said: "That evening, June 8 was the date of the opening match in the Euro 2012 football tournament.

"We know that there were some fishermen on the pontoon of the Gosport Ferry in Portsmouth Harbour at the time
of the last confirmed sighting of Ben. We'd like to hear from these men.

"We have also had an unconfirmed sighting of Ben close to his home address on Sunday 10 June. If you saw him on
that date, or since 9pm on Friday 8 June we want to hear from you."

He added: "We are keeping an open mind as to what has happened to Ben, but we urgently want to hear from anyone
who has seen him or who has been in touch with him."
Mr Hilton is described as:

  • White
  • Short wavy brown hair
  • Blue eyes
  • Thin metal rimmed glasses
  • He was wearing a blue shirt which was open at the neck, with a t-shirt
    underneath the shirt, dark trousers and shoes
  • 6' 1 tall and of medium build

Anyone who may have seen someone matching this description is asked to contact the Western Area CID at
Southampton Central police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
