Nathan Clarke

It’s now been four days since 30-year-old Nathan Clarke was reported missing.

The Teaching Assistant was last seen by his partner and friends near Calico Jack’s on Seven Mile Beach at approximately 8.30 pm on Saturday 25 February 2012.

When last seen he was walking towards the water’s edge near the bar and was wearing beige swim shorts. His friends believed that he was planning to walk along the beach towards his West Bay home. A few minutes later his friends started walking along the beach in the direction of West Bay, but they could find no trace of Nathan.

They then all returned to their respective homes believing that he would return safe and sound later that night, but when he had failed to turn up or contact any of his friends or his girlfriend, he was reported as missing to police on Sunday morning.

Since receiving the report, Uniform, CID, Marine and K-9 Officers from the RCIPS, assisted by members of the public and friends of Nathan, have conducted extensive searches along Seven Mile Beach and West Bay Road.  The water searches have involved four RCIPS Marine vessels and divers. The areas between the Kittiwake site and Governors Beach have been covered, extending over 400 metres out to sea. On the land side, over 60 civilian volunteers and police teams have covered from Governors Beach to Salt Creek and the Dykes. The RCIPS K-9 Unit has also been heavily involved in the searching.

The RCIPS is working with the MRCU Unit, whose fixed wing aircraft is assisting in relation to land and water searches.

Cayman Islands Helicopters have been privately commissioned by friends of Nathan to assist. Unfortunately the RCIPS helicopter is not available due to operational reasons.

CCTV footage as well as telephone records are currently been reviewed to ascertain if they can be of any assistance in tracing Nathan’s whereabouts.

The RCIPS has appointed a Family Liaison Officer to ensure that his girlfriend and his family, who are located in Europe, are kept fully updated with developments.

There are currently a number of photographs of Nathan circulating. However, officers have established that the most recent photograph is the one shown top left.

Police are once again appealing for anyone who has information about Nathan’s disappearance to come forward.

Superintendent Marlon Bodden is overseeing the enquiry. He said “We have established an incident room at West Bay police station and would ask anyone who has information to contact officers there. We would be particularly keen to hear from anyone who was on public beach early on Sunday morning at Calico Jacks for the “off the Beaten Track” event. If you were involved in the event and saw anything out of the ordinary on the beach on Sunday morning, please call us now.

Information can be passed on the following numbers, West Bay police station 949-3999 or RCIPS tip-line 949-7777
