Body of dad-of-three found on Father's Day after he vanished on his way to work two months ago

POLICE searching for a dad-of-three who vanished on his way to work two months ago found a body on Father's Day.

Glen Carr, 37, was last seen leaving his home in Gateshead in his grey BMW 3 Series on April 23.

But he failed to show up to work – with cops later discovering the motor in the car park of Cow Green Reservoir in County Durham.

Police today confirmed they yesterday found a body in the search for the missing dad-of-three.

Although formal identification has not taken place, police believe it belongs to missing Glen.

They do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances surrounding his death and a report will be prepared for the coroner in due course.

Detective Chief Inspector Angela Hufton, of Northumbria Police, said: "This has been an incredibly difficult time for Glen’s family and in particular his partner Kim who has had to put on a brave face for their three young children.

"They have been desperate for answers about Glen’s disappearance and this was the news they have been dreading in recent weeks.

"Father’s Day was always going to be difficult for Kim and her children but it will now forever be associated with Glen’s body being discovered.

"We will continue to support them and would ask that their privacy is respected so they can take the time they need to grieve."

'AMAZING DAD'

The tragic discovery comes just days after his family made a desperate plea for information ahead of Father's Day.

Kim Jackson, his partner of more than 20 years, said last Thursday: "These have been the worst two months of our lives and we have found it really difficult to come to terms with why Glen went missing.

"This Sunday is Father’s Day and Glen was an amazing dad who would do anything for his kids. This weekend will just be another reminder of how much he is missed.

"We have had to celebrate birthdays without him and put on a brave face for his three children but they just want to know where their dad is.

"It is hard to accept that he will never come home but we still don’t know for certain that he has gone into the water and are desperate for some answers.

"We would ask anyone who has visited the reservoir in the last few months to think about whether they were there on that day and whether they may have seen Glen.

"It may have not meant much to you at the time but if you can recall even the tiniest of details then it could make a huge difference to our family."

Glen's car was discovered at the beauty spot along with his personal belongings after he failed to make it to work in April.

Police believed he had entered the water.

A search was launched and police appealed for anyone who may have seen him at the reservoir to get in touch.
