Appeal for Kilburn man, missing for two years


Police officers in Brent remain concerned for the welfare of a man who has not been seen in over two years since he failed to attend his daughter’s 18th birthday celebrations. 

Robert Duff’s family last heard from him on the evening of Saturday January 12 2013, when he accidentally left a voicemail on a family member’s phone. During this call Robert was heard to be in the company of a man he called ‘Gal’.

Police enquiries established Robert made that call from the Islington, N19 area of London

Father-of- two Robert, 39 of Kilburn, NW6 was due to meet his family at 3pm but didn’t turn up.

Subsequent police enquiries to trace him revealed the last known sighting of Mr Duff to be CCTV footage of him at approximately 11:12 am, withdrawing cash from an ATM machine outside Sainsbury, 645 Holloway Road.

A/Detective Sergeant Kevin Harvey from Brent Police said: “Robert has been missing for over two years and this is a very distressing time for his family.

“I urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to call us immediately or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously. I would also appeal to Robert that if you are in any kind of trouble then we can help you, just call your family or the police to let us know you are safe.”

Robert is described as a white man, with short brown hair, 5′ 7″ – 5′ 8″ tall and of slim build.

At the time of his disappearance he was known to frequent the Holloway, Kentish Town, Islington and Camden areas.

Anyone with information should call the Brent police Missing Person Unit on 020 8733 3771, or Missing People on 116 000.
