Sheffield Wednesday are supporting a charity that helps reunite missing people with their loved ones and for this weekend’s game are supporting one campaign in particular.
Representatives of the organisation, ‘Missing People’, will be at Saturday’s home game against Cardiff to help raise awareness around the campaign for missing person, Damion Vernon.
Owls players Will Keane and Lewis Baker have also shown their support to the campaign.
Damion was last seen in Wakefield on 08 December 2014 and it is hoped that posters at the game and social media awareness will help in the search.
At half-time of today’s game, fans are asked to re-tweet Damion’s Twitter appeal sent from @missingpeople. For more information on the campaign and the charity visit www.missingpeople.org.uk
He is one of 250,000 people who go missing in the UK each year. Thankfully, the majority of these people return home, but for those who don’t, it can be a traumatic time for those left behind.
Missing People aim to reunite those who are missing with their loved ones, and are the only charity in the UK to provide specialist support to those in need when someone disappears.
Along with running a free and confidential 24-hour helpline, 116 000, the charity helps those left looking for answers after a loved one disappears by raising awareness of missing appeals across the country.
Missing People would like to say thank you to Owls fans for their support.
