A ONGOING murder investigation is focusing on the victim's activities on day he disappeared almost 30 years ago.

Steven Clark went missing on Monday, December 28,1992, in Marske-by-the Sea.

Following a cold case review, The Cleveland and North Yorkshire Cold Case Unit launched a murder investigation, and want to hear from anyone who knew Mr Clark or remember seeing him on that Christmas weekend, from Friday 25th December to Monday 28th December.

After recently making a new appeal to the public for information or sightings of Mr Clark, police feel confident their efforts are working, with a new witness coming forward with a potential new sighting of Mr Clark on Marske High Street.

Following this sighting, Detective Chief Inspector Shaun Page, who is leading the investigation, believes that Mr Clark was on his way to his home address when he was seen, and that he was alive between 3pm and 4pm and in Marske.

Detective Chief Inspector Shaun Page said: “I’m pleased with the information that we have so far, as we’re building up a picture of what Steven was like and the relationships that he had with those around him.

“The public is key to this case, and by ensuring people living and working in Marske see our appeal through the digivan, we will raise awareness across the whole community.

“The potential sighting of Steven is absolutely key for the investigation and forms the basis of our appeal on the ground.”

More details have been released about Mr Clark and his life.

He was born in Colchester, Essex in 1969 and lived near Edinburgh, Scotland when he was around the age of two. He was involved in a road accident in a town called Kirkliston in which he was seriously injured after being hit by a lorry.

He spent some time at a school in Kimbolten, Cambridgeshire and went to South Africa to live in the early 1980s where he went to the Muriel Brand School near Johannesburg. He came back from South Africa after 10 years and lived in Guildford in Surrey before moving to Marske in the summer of 1991.

When he moved to Marske, he did some work for Leonard Cheshire Home, which is also known as Marske Hall.

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain on police bail pending further investigation.
