Detectives from the Cleveland and North Yorkshire Cold Case Unit have been conducting an investigation into the circumstances of the disappearance of Steven Clark. As a result of this, and due to there being no proof of life, detectives believe that Steven has come to serious harm and a murder inquiry was launched.

Steven was 23 when he went missing. The missing persons report said that Steven was last seen at 3pm after a family walk on Monday 28th December 1992. The report says that he went to use the gents’ public toilets near to the pier on the promenade in Saltburn, when his mum went into the ladies at the same time, but he wasn’t seen coming out of the toilets and did not return home.

Officers are appealing for information from anyone who knew Steven at the time of his disappearance, or who may have information that could help with the case. They also want to hear from anyone who may have seen something on the weekend of his disappearance, which was Christmas bank holiday weekend, who maybe didn’t feel that it was relevant at the time.

Key to the investigation is establishing what Steven’s relationships were like with the people that he knew, at the time of his disappearance.
