A woman whose husband went missing five months ago has issued a heartfelt appeal for him to come home for Christmas.
Terrie Beardsley faces a bleak festive period without her husband, Tim, who vanished in July.
Police are still searching for Mr Beardsley but admit his disappearance is a complete mystery.
Emotional Mrs Beardsley, 42, of Station New Road, Old Tupton, said: “If Tim’s reading this now, I’d just like to say please come home for Christmas – I want you back.
“He loves this time of the year and it just won’t be the same without him.”
She added: “It’s been a tough five months without Tim – I think about him every single day – and I still feel rather numb.
“It’s all very surreal.”
Despite the uncertainty, Mrs Beardsley said she believed her husband was still alive.
Mr Beardsley, 44, was reported missing by his wife on Monday, July 9, and his car was found near Ullswater in the Lake District five days later.
Mrs Beardsley has distributed thousands of posters in a desperate bid to help find her husband.
A Derbyshire police spokesman said: “We’re still looking for Mr Beardsley but unfortunately at the moment we have no active lines of enquiry to follow.
“In the initial weeks and months after his disappearance, police conducted considerable enquiries but all of these have drawn a blank as to his whereabouts.”
Mr Beardsley is white, 5ft 10in tall, with short brown hair.
Anyone with information his disappearance should call Derbyshire police on 101.
