The wife and family of a missing man from Slough have today (10/5), issued a statement and a reward for information which leads to his safe return.

Gurdip Kang, aged 49, of Shaggy Calf Lane, Slough, was reported missing to police on Saturday 5 May, after he left his home address in his car without informing his family where he was going.

Speaking from their family home this morning (10/5), his wife Mrs Amarjit Kang and family issued the following personal message:

“Dear Gurdip. This is a message from all your family and friends.

“Gurdip, it has now been six days since you left us and we are all so worried about you. We are missing you so much and want you to come home and give us a hug or just call and let us know you are safe and well.

“Your wife Amarjit, and children Sam and Pam, are desperate to see you. Sam, aged 23, says it is too far to walk to the station in the mornings and Pam, aged 20, says she misses daddy’s special cups of tea together.

“Amarjit misses you terribly and can’t carry on without you and wants you back home as soon as possible so we can all be happy again.

“Please please come home or let someone know you are ok.

“We are sorry if we have ever taken you for granted. We are here for you and want you back home quickly.”

Gurdip wears a black turban and when he was last seen on Saturday he was wearing a navy fleece jacket, with a white polo shirt and black trousers. It is not unusual for Gurdip to sometimes wear a baseball cap.

A/Det Insp Stuart Bosley, of Slough Force CID, said: “Numerous inquiries have been conducted over the past six days and will continue with officers trying to find Gurdip.

“Gurdip’s vehicle, a burgundy Astra, has since been found in a car park along Windsor Road, near to the Jubilee River, however there has been no sighting or contact from the 49-year-old since he left his home address.

“We are growing increasingly concerned about his welfare and would urge anyone with any information about his whereabouts to come forward immediately.”

Gurdip’s wife and family have issued a reward for any information which leads to him being found safe and well.

Those with information should contact Thames Valley Police on 101 quoting URN 626 5/5. Those who do not wish to speak to police and would like to leave information anonymously, can call Crimestoppers the charity on 0800 555 111.
