Dean Tate search: Burnham-On-Sea Police examining new leads

Burnham-On-Sea Police are 'actively following up' new leads from the public and sifting through CCTV footage in the search for Dean Tate, who went missing over two weeks ago.

The 40-year-old, pictured right, was last seen in TA8s Bistro Bar in Pier Street, Burnham at around 2am on Saturday 24th February.

Detective Inspector Richard Horsfall told "We are doing everything we can to find Dean and are keeping his partner and family updated and fully informed with our progress."

"I know they are extremely grateful for all the support shown by members of the public and have taken great comfort in the affection in which Dean is clearly held."

"I’d like to thank members of the public who have called in with information along with local businesses who have provided us with CCTV from the night of Friday 23rd February and of the early hours of the following morning."

"Without their help we would not have the lines of enquiry we do which we are actively following up."

Police officers were in the Pier Street and Marine Drive areas of Burnham-On-Sea last night (Friday), seeking information from local pub users.

Specialist police search advisors are co-ordinating efforts to find Dean with partner agencies assisting in land and water searches.

Avon and Somerset Search and Rescue, HM Coastguard, BARB Search & Rescue, RNLI, Avon Fire and Rescue, and Devon and Cornwall Police are among the groups who have supported the inquiry.

The Police helicopter and specialist search dogs have also been called upon as detectives continue to examine CCTV footage and review witness statements.
