Marc was recovering from minor knee surgery which had taken place on the 19 February. His family and friends believe that Marc may have suffered an adverse reaction to the anaesthetic used during the operation and are extremely concerned.

The last know sighting of Marc was by friends at 23:00hrs at his home address in Sefton Street, Putney. He is described as a white man, 6 feet tall, of proportionate build with short dark hair. Marc may be using crutches following his knee surgery.

Police investigating Marc’s disappearance continue to pursue all lines of enquiry and there is no indication that he has used public transport or accessed his bank accounts since he disappeared.

Phil Hutton, Marc’s father said:
“As a family we are extremely concerned about Marc following his surgery almost a month ago. It is out of character for him to disappear like this and we believe that he may have suffered a reaction to the anaesthetic. We urgently require the help of the public in tracing him. Anyone with any information that can help us find our son is asked to contact the police.”

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Foley, from Wandsworth Borough CID, said:
“It is almost two weeks since Marc disappeared from his home address in Putney and detectives from Wandsworth are growing increasingly concerned about his welfare.
This is a distressing time for Marc’s family, so I am appealing to the public to assist us by providing any information as to his whereabouts that will take us closer to tracing him.”

Anyone who may have seen Marc is asked to call Wandsworth police station via 101, quoting ref 14MIS007050.
