Missing Hull man Jay Cracknell: Police will not relaunch search, family told
POLICE have told the family of missing man Jason Cracknell they will continue to keep an eye out for him but will not relaunch any search.
Self-employed joiner Jason Cracknell's family and friends have begged him to let them know he is safe.
Jason, 40, who is known as Jay, has not contacted any friends or family since Tuesday, September 18, after leaving his home in Hessle High Road on foot.
He left with no mobile phone, identification, bank cards or keys, although he did take some camping gear, a change of clothes and about £200 in cash.

After being reported missing, police officers managed to track him down ten days ago.
However, the police will not reveal Jay's whereabouts to his family, insisting it would be a breach of confidence.
But following a reported sighting of Jay in Anlaby, police have said they will keep an eye out for him.
Jay's sister-in-law Sally Cracknell said: "Jay's dad Neville received a call from a woman who thought she had seen Jay near Morrisons supermarket in Anlaby.
"She also reported it to the police, who have created a new log.
"The policeman I spoke to said he would put observations out for officers in the area to keep an eye out for Jay.
"The police said they will ring us if there is any more information.
"They had closed the previous log after finding him, so at least there is a new log opened."
Jay's dad Neville, of Appleton Road, west Hull, is pleased the police are taking some action although the sighting in Anlaby turned out to be a false alarm.
He said: "We are so worried about Jason and it's pleasing the police are looking at it again.
"We understand they're not carrying out any new searches but at least they are taking an interest.
"A woman called me up yesterday to report a sighting.
"It turned out to be a false alarm but it's good to know the public are aware of the situation."
The family are growing increasingly worried because Jay, 40, has been suffering with depression following the death of his mother in January from motor neurone disease.
His medication is due to run out this week and it would have been his mum's birthday today.
But a spokeswoman for Humberside Police insists they are not treating Jay as a missing person.
She said: "There is a new log following the report of a sighting of Mr Cracknell.
"But we are not classing Mr Cracknell as a missing person.
"Mr Cracknell didn't wish for his whereabouts to be disclosed when we found him. There is no change to our position in this respect."
A Facebook page has been set up by friends and family to help find him, while searches have taken place around Hessle Foreshore, close to Humber Bridge Country Park.
