THE PREGNANT wife of missing Arbroath marine Ralph Hebden is set to give birth within days and has once again pleaded “please come home.”
Ralph’s wife Sarah is now nearing full-term, with her husband aware that her due date is in early April.
However, police have revealed that the baby is now due sooner than expected, although they added his wife does not wish to go into further detail due to personal reasons.
But she did plead to her husband, who has been missing for over a week: “Ralph, we are all missing you and are worried about you. Our baby is now due sooner than expected, please come home.”
Ralph (32), has not been seen since leaving his home in Arbroath last Monday morning (March 11) and despite extensive searches in and around the town, his whereabouts are still unknown.
The last confirmed sighting of the marine, who is originally from Liverpool, was outside the Morrison’s store in Arbroath shortly after 8.30 a.m. last Monday. It is thought he then headed to the cliffs.
And on Wednesday police appealed to anyone who may have been in Victoria Park on the day he went missing to come forward, in particular a canoeist who was seen at the waterfront area aeound 11.50 a.m.
On Monday police were at Morrison’s in Hume Street to try to jog the memories of members of the public who may have seen him and officers also visited the town’s bus and train stations.
When last seen he was wearing black trainers, dark blue or black jogging bottoms, a blue fleece and a black beanie hat. He had a blue rain jacket with him too.
Anyone who knows where Ralph is or who has information that could assist Tayside Police in tracing him should call 101 or speak to any police officer.
