Family beg dad who disappeared after saying he was ‘going away’ to call this Christmas – Liverpool Echo

A missing man's partner has said that hearing from him and knowing he is safe would be the "perfect Christmas gift".

Marie Comber had been with Trevor Farthing for 30 years when he disappeared in 2017 and was never heard from again.

Trevor, who would now be 55, called his long term partner, who he had three children with, on the last day he was seen to tell her he was "going away".

On June 21, 2017, Trevor left his home in Newton-le-Willows wearing a khaki green T-shirt and blue denim jeans.

He was last seen on Marshalls Cross Road, St Helens, at around 9.30am and Merseyside Police have repeatedly appealed for information about his whereabouts.

And his devastated family say the ordeal of losing him "is a nightmare" that is just as tough now as it was three years ago and Christmas without him will never be the same.

Marie said: "It's a nightmare. Living without him is never something I thought I would have to do.

"We were together 30 years and we did everything as a pair. We decorated together and did crafts, went out on our bikes and I just don't know how to do any of those thing without him.

"I'm just a bit lost without him."

Marie said she is often urged to "move on" by those around her as Trevor remains missing over three years later.

The shop worker told the ECHO: "People say to me 'Marie it has been three years, time to move on with your life' but how can I?

"How can I move on or even begin to try until I know he is safe and okay. I just need to know that."

Marie spoke to Trevor on the day he went missing and said she will never forget what he said to her.

She said: "He called me and said he was "going away" and I wasn't really sure what he meant.

"Trevor didn't like how the world was going, he didn't know how to use a cash machine and he only wanted to use a phone with buttons.

"He was old fashioned like that and he struggled with the way things were changing."

A few days after Trevor disappeared, police issued an appeal for a woman who had previously brought him home concerned for his welfare.

It is believed Merseyside Police are keen to trace one woman who met Trevor on Sunday, June 18 in 2017 in the Bradley Road area of Newton-le-Willows, near the Sankey Canal.

Since he went missing, his partner and three daughters, Gemma, 35, Megan 27, and Faye 18, have continually begged for him to come home or get in touch.

He now also has three grandchildren.

Marie said: "The girls miss him terribly and are still hopeful we will hear from him.

"We can't move on until we know he is alright.

"The girls and my grandkids keep me going but it's not knowing for us."

Trevor is described as 5ft5 with a sleeve of tattoos on his left arm.

He has a large black scorpion tattoo on the top of his left arm.

When he was last seen, Trevor was wearing a green tshirt, blue denim jeans, walking boots and a Nike cap.

Marie also wanted people to know that he had a 10p sized birthmark under the left side of his chin which may help to identify him.

The family have issued repeated appeals for information and a number of people have been in touch with Marie with possible sightings.

One man messaged on Facebook two years ago to say that he believes Trevor is living in Warrington and may now have grey wavy hair and a beard.

But Marie said there is little anyone can do to locate him unless Trevor gets in touch himself.

Marie and her family face their fourth Christmas without Trevor and would love nothing more than to hear from him.

She added: "It would be the perfect gift, to know he okay and happy and safe.

"We love and miss him so much and always will. Having him back would mean the world but even hearing he is alright would be everything to us."
