The family of a man who has been missing from Clapham since 2006 have launched an appeal on the 15th anniversary of his disappearance.

Andrew Faria was 36 years old when he went missing from Clapham, London on Thursday, July 6, 2006.

His disappearance prompted a search to find him but, 15 years later, his family are still waiting for answers.

Andrew's sister, Michelle, said in a message on behalf of their family:

"There is not a day goes by that we don't think about you as a family and whilst it has been 15 years since you went missing there is not a time that we will not give up hope that one day we you will be reunited with us.

"We will always love you, if you are reading this, please come home."
