Officers searching for missing 25-year-old Michal Zygan have today (Wednesday) returned to a city canal towpath where he was last seen to hand out leaflets as part of the ongoing appeal for information.

This morning teams were stationed near Bede Park and in surrounding locations speaking to members of the public.

Michal was last seen walking along the canal towpath in Leicester at around 8.30am on Wednesday 25 July – exactly two weeks ago – and officers were keen to speak to people making a similar journey or commute today.

Flyers featuring a CCTV image of Michal were handed out to people passing through the area, with teams asking the public to cast their minds back to the day that he was last seen.

Sergeant Chris Day, who oversaw the operation, said: “We know that Michal was on the towpath near Richard III Road at around 8.34am but we urgently need to know where he went from there.

“Our CCTV footage shows that there were many other people in the area at the time.

“That’s why we returned to the area today, two weeks since he was last seen, to speak to the public and ask if they have any information that could assist our investigation.

“Officers handed out a number of leaflets to passers-by and the response from the public this morning has been positive.

“However, we would still urge anyone who may have seen Michal that morning, who may have spoken to him, or who may have seen him since, to get in touch.”

If anyone has seen Michal or who knows where he is, they need to contact the police immediately quoting incident 531 of 26 July.
