Police are searching for a former King’s School pupil who has been reported missing in Durham.

Euan Coulthard, who is 19, and a law student at St Mary’s College, was reported missing yesterday afternoon by a friend who was concerned when he could not make contact with him. A search is under way in Durham for the university student who has not been seen since the early hours of yesterday morning (January 15).

Euan, who is from Bottesford, left his home in the city on Wednesday, January 14, and later went for a meal at the Spaghettata restaurant in Saddler Street to celebrate a 21st birthday with friends.

He was last seen just after midnight leaving the Loveshack club, in the Walkergate area of the city, alone.

Euan has failed to respond to texts, emails and messages on Facebook that friends have sent him and they say this is completely out of character.

He is described as 5` 9” tall and of average build with light brown hair, which is short on the sides and longer on the top. When he was last seen he was wearing black skinny jeans, a denim jacket and a beige patterned shirt.

Insp Dave Coxon said: “We have serious concerns for Euan’s welfare as there has been no trace of him since the early hours of Thursday morning. He hasn’t responded to any attempts to contact him and his phone has not been traced.

“If anyone has seen him since then, or if they saw a young man matching his description in Durham on last night, I would ask them to contact us as soon as possible on 101.”

Euan was captured by the city’s CCTV cameras as he walked across Framwellgate Bridge shortly before midnight on Wednesday.
