A HUNTINGDON mother is continuing her search for her missing son after a potential sighting in the town last week has so far failed to lead to the 23-year-old.
Nicholas Davey has not made contact with his family for friends for more than three weeks.
He moved away from Huntingdon seven weeks ago and was last seen on May 12 going to a bank on his way to work in Tolworth, Surrey.
He failed to turn up at work and has not been seen since.
His mother Lorraine Davey, 41, of Garner Court, Huntingdon, told The Hunts Post yesterday (Tuesday) that there had been some other potential sightings, but nothing concrete.
Mrs Davey said: "These are only possible sightings and nothing is 100 per cent. I look at lads and think that is him but then I realise it isn't. It's just horrible not knowing where he is and if he is safe."
A spokesman for Scotland Yard said they were still looking for Mr Davey and were following up possible sightings of Nicholas at a day care centre in Peterborough between May 15 and 23 and then in Huntingdon on May 27.
Mrs Davey is going into hospital for a gull stone to be removed from her bladder on Thursday but says she is scared to leave the house in case Nicholas comes home or phones.
"My partner, Rod, has taken the day off work so that he can sit by the phone when I'm in hospital and as soon as my anaesthetic wears off I'll be going straight back home to sit by the phone."
Mrs Davey, who has lived in Huntingdon for three years, spoke to her son the day before he went missing and said that he sounded happy and focussed.
In a bid to find him she has put up posters across Huntingdonshire and has even launched an appeal via the social networking, site, Facebook.
Mrs Davey said that her son had a gambling problem but he had taken steps to seek help.
