Joshua Davis was aged 19 when he went missing from the Lincolnshire town on December 1, 2013.

According to a social media post from BBC Radio Shetland in 2017 Joshua moved from Yell in Shetland to the Lincolnshire town in 2011.

BBC Radio Shetland reported that Joshua studied IT at a local college before deciding to travel around Europe. It is understood that his mother dropped him off at a Spalding train station to start his journey. After sporadic emails with his family he hasn’t been in touch since January 2014.

The other case in the Spalding area is of Duy Nguyen who went missing aged 15 on December 4, 2016.

The teenager was last seen at around midday on December 4 at the Peacocks store in the Market Place in Spalding, where he was shopping with his foster carer.

He is described as 5′ 2″ tall, of slim build, with short dark hair. It is also understood that he has a scar over his right eye.
