Please please help

The British Haiku Society has been asked to help.  Can you do your bit?   Use social media, emails, there may be a British friend or colleague who knows someone in or close to Preston.  It may make all the difference if a friend knows a friend to put this closer to their heart, rather than yet another newspaper article about a missing person.

Even American and other non-British members can help via Facebook and Twitter, or email British friends, family, penpals, someone might know someone who lives near Preston.  Put a human face on this tragedy. 

Martin has been missing since 10 pm Friday night.  He is alone and highly vulnerable.  He is not tough like some of us.

From the British Haiku Society:

Martin Lucas, former BHS president and current editor of Presence haiku magazine, has been reported missing. His family have asked us to help in appealing for information. If you have any information, please ring the police on 101. We can also pass information on to Martin's family if you have anything you think might be useful to them in their search. Please share this post to help. Visit the link below for further information: http://www.lancashire.police.uk/about-us/news/appeal-for-missing-preston-man

Thank you, every little bit of help may help.

This is Martin:

thank you,

This is shocking news.

As editor of Presence, Martin has been always kind and helpful in dealing with submissions.

Hoping for his safe return.

A few false leads so there's no real update, which is worrying.

Here's this morning's announcement:
