Humberside Police say missing Hull man Jason Norfolk was involved in a row outside a taxi rank in the city before he went missing.

Officers say the 20-year-old ended up on the floor after trying to get into someone else’s taxi in Lowgate.

It comes as the force launch an appeal to find several men who could have been the last to see Jason before he went missing shortly before 1.30 in the morning of December 6th.

Humberside Police are urging the people below to contact them to aid officers investigating the disappearance:

– Three men, two younger and one older, who were outside the Argos Shop on Lowgate at 1.16am on December 6, 2015, when Jason Norfolk staggered up to try and get a taxi home. Enquiries reveal these men travelled in a Taxi to the Anlaby/West Hull area.

– A man in a navy quilted jacket who is seen helping Jason outside of Argos as he tried to get into someone else’s taxi. Jason had a disagreement with one man and ended up on the floor. The man in this CCTV comes to Jason’s aid and helps him up, sitting with him on a bench outside of Argos for a while.

– A fifth man officers want to trace, is a man who walked from the area of Myton Bridge at 1.25am, along High Street and left onto Liberty Lane before turning right onto Lowgate and walking toward Guildhall. He is believed to have passed Jason around 1.25am. Jason had stopped on High Street at the back of the Magistrates Court and opposite Trinity Wharf apartments. The unknown man was dressed in dark clothing and was carrying what appeared to be an iPad or similar which was lit up.

– Humberside Police also need to trace a man and woman who went into the rear door of Trinity Wharf apartments opposite the rear of the Magistrates Court around 1.30am. The man stayed at the door, the woman was seen to go upstairs then both left, returning a short while later with bottles of water.

Officers believe at about 1.26am Jason staggered along Liberty Lane then ran, turning right onto High Street where he stopped at the rear of the Magistrates Court next to an electricity box, under a lamp post, opposite Church Lane Staith.

The last positive sighting of Jason was at 1.24am on December 6, 2015.

His phone was found on the river bank at the bottom of Church Lane Staith, his shoes were found a few metres further towards Scale Lane Bridge. His trousers, complete with wallet in the back pocket, were found a little further toward Scale Lane Bridge a few days later. The wallet has been seen by his parents and identified as belonging to Jason.

Jason was reported missing at 3.37pm on Sunday December 6 after failing to return home following the night out.
