The heartbroken fiancé of missing mum Sarah Wellgreen has said in a New Year appeal how he is desperate she is found.
Neil James says he wants Sarah “given back” to him and her devastated children.
Mum-of-five Sarah, who would have turned 47 on December 14, went missing from her home in New Ash Green, Kent, on October 9 and has not been seen since, despite huge searches by police and volunteers.
Her former partner, Ben Lacomba, 38, has appeared in court charged with her murder.
An online fundraising campaign launched to raise money for the children has reached nearly £2,500 and has been promoted on social media by Mr James, 45.
In the Facebook post, Mr James, of Farnham, Surrey, said: “Happy New Year everyone and let’s hope that it brings everything we want in personal goals and career aspirations.
“The reason for this post is to hopefully help reach the target set on the GoFundme page and help Sarah Jane Wellgreen’ s family and most importantly her children through this terrible time and with luck, Sarah will be given back to us and Sarah’s children.
“How can we help: if everyone could share this post to your friends and if they also do the same then maybe, just maybe we could get to 50,000 people and if everyone just donated £1 (the cost of a chocolate bar) then we could all get there for them.
“Thank you for your continued support.”
People have been donating to the appeal over the New Year period.
One who donated said: “No amount of money can ever replace the love of a mother.
"I hope in some way it will help you all as a family take some of the strain and stress away of day to day living.
“Heartfelt thoughts go to her five children and the extended family and friends.”
Another said: “I have been touched by this very sad story and send my condolences to the family and friends of Sarah, mainly her children.”
Sarah’s family have repeatedly appealed on social media for information and have described their ordeal as a “never-ending nightmare”.
Police have searched large areas of land in Kent as part of their investigation, including on the bank of the River Thames in Greenhithe and land near Bluewater Shopping Centre.
