It is with much sadness that we have to share the news that Anthony was found in the early hours of today (Friday) following intelligence that was received yesterday evening.


Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole of Anthony’s family, the search team and our volunteers, we have come to know you quite well over the last 5 days and we are heartbroken for you all that there wasn’t a better outcome.

Mike Robinson, Karen Moon and the K9-SAR team - you are special people, True heroes! You’ve invested so much time into this, sharing your knowledge and experience and of course offering your specialist equipment.


The search team have worked incredibly close to Anthonys family and have done all we could have done, we have endured many calls, messages and meetings during all hours since Tuesday.


Finally, Thank you to everyone that reached out to us offering help, the leaflet team, the searchers, those that shared our posts… thank you…. through the power of community we were able to identify a route that Anthony had taken and have been able to support his family and loved ones through the most difficult and unimaginable time.


Remember it’s ok not to be ok…

We have a page on our website with details of organisations that you can talk to any time night or day. Please remember that someone will always listen to you, won’t judge and will be your friend. Visit our website for details on where you can find help here.

Anthony is still missing.


Thanks to everyone who continues to offer support to us and the team on this.


Search teams from West Yorkshire Police, Mountain Rescue and K9-SAR have covered a huge amount of ground over the last 3 days with friend of WF3 Kindness Mike Robinson and his colleagues at K9-SAR working into the early hours using specialist Thermal Imaging and infrared equipment and drones.


The search teams have focussed on a few specific areas in and around the Tingley and West Ardsley areas and will continue to work together to widen the search as required.


CAN WE ASK AGAIN THAT PEOPLE ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO CHECK CCTV AND ALL RECORDING DEVICES (DASH CAMS, DOOR BELLS etc) IN AND AROUND TINGLEY FROM 9:30pm ON SUNDAY TO TRY AND IDENTIFY THE ROUTE THAT ANTHONY HAS TAKEN.


Special thanks to Kevin Mawson and the guys at Robrook Design & Print who once again showed their support to WF3 Kindness by delivering over 1000 leaflets with details of the search and a plea for people to check their CCTV/ Dash Cam/ Door Bells etc. The WF3 Kindness volunteers targeted a certain area with these leaflets and these were delivered within 3 hours of being printed! This was great community work, thanks to Kev and his team and the volunteers that put the mileage in last night. We have some areas that we still want to target and that work will continue today.


Leeds United played yesterday evening (Wednesday) and as Anthony is an avid supporter there was a focus of attention around Elland Road too. Special thanks to the club and also BBC Radio Leeds who helped spread the word of Anthony’s disappearance.

Unfortunately Anthony is still missing and the team continue to work in the local and surrounding areas.


We have spoken to Mike and the amazing team at K9-SAR who have been out for most of today supporting the Mountain Rescue Team (MRT) and specialist search teams using specialist drones and equipment to assist them.


We have also spoken to Chloe, Anthony’s daughter who has asked that we reiterate their latest appeal to check any CCTV, especially those on and around Westerton Road between 9pm on Sunday (21st) and 1am on Monday (22nd August) to help establish what direction Anthony moved in. If you can help please reach out to us and we can put you in contact with the family and search teams.

Specialist Search teams have been working for nearly 48 hours and will continue into the night using thermal imaging equipment.

We have let the MRT know that we are ready to support when they need us and that volunteers if needed will be available. Please continue to get in touch with us if you would be willing to help in the search and we will reach out to you when needed.
