TV Appeal for Missing Brentford Man
Tom Moore has not been seen for over three years
The case of Tom Moore is to be featured on the BBC show Missing. Mr. Moore said goodbye to his mother at their Brentford home in July 2003 and his family have not seen him since.
Tom was deeply religious and often travelled to shrines across Europe. He suffered mental health problems which were compounded by drug use. His family have visited many religious sites showing pictures of Tom in the hope that someone would recognise him and when his bank statement showed a withdrawal in Italy, Tom's brother and father travelled there and heard from a local friar than someone answering his description had visited the monastery just two weeks before they arrived.
The Moore family remain hopeful that Tom will at least send them a message that he is safe and well. He is described as 5ft 7ins, of medium build with blue eyes, brown hair. When he was last seen he had a gingery beard as in the photo to the left. He was in the habit of wearing a number of religious symbols such as crucifixes and rosaries.
Missing looks at the work of the National Missing Persons Helpline. The series is presented by award-winning journalist and NMPH Celebrity Ambassador, Sally Magnusson.
Chief Executive of NMPH, Paul Tuohy, says: "Each series of Missing has bettered the last and I hope that this new series will be just as successful. With the public's help, we hope to solve these mysteries and put an end to the heartache that those left behind face."

The programme will be broadcast at 9.15am on BBC One on Tuesday 24th April.
