Deaf News: Missing Deaf man in Sussex found after BSL appeal from policeman

Posted on January 22, 2015

We reported yesterday on a missing Deaf man called Thomas Swan in Sussex, who hadn’t been seen since Friday last week.

Sergeant Glen Barham, who is the Hampshire Constabulary Police Link Officer for Deaf people, signed an appeal for information as to Thomas’s whereabouts (see below).

We’re pleased to report that in a comment last night on See Hear’s Facebook page, Sgt Barham declared that Thomas had been found alive and well:

You can see Sgt Barham’s video below. Let’s hope the police keep using methods like this to reach out to the Deaf community.
