The heavily-pregnant partner of missing Biggleswade man Wayne Jeffs has made a heartfelt appeal for his safe return.
Wayne, 29, is still missing after last being seen at Eagle Farm Road in Biggleswade at 8.10pm on Thursday last week, with civilian volunteers from the community mounting searches for him last night.
And speaking to the Comet today, 6½-month pregnant Carla Holbrook called on her partner to please make his location known and come home.
Clearly emotional, she said: “I just want him to come home – I’m not mad at him. We’ve got a baby on the way so I just want him to come home.”
Carla, who has been with Wayne for six years, is set to make a TV appeal through ITV Anglia News tonight.

“They found one lead last night, but it was ruled out straight away – it turned out to be nothing whatsoever.”
Police are growing increasingly concerned for Wayne’s welfare, and today made a second appeal to the public to help find him.
Det Sgt Mark Stewart, who is investigating, said: “There has been no sighting of Wayne since he disappeared on Thursday and despite following a number of lines of enquiry, we have been unable to locate him.
“I’m appealing for anyone who may have seen him to get in touch with us – and I’d also urge Wayne himself to get in touch with us if he sees this, as his family are understandably very worried about him.”
Wayne is described as a slim white man, about 5ft 8in, with brown hair. He was last seen wearing a blue top, blue work trousers and black trainers, with a silver chain around his neck.
He is thought to have a blue hooded top with him from Henlow-based NG Bruce Plastering, his place of work.
Carla added that Wayne can look quite different when wearing his dirty work clothes.
Anyone who knows where Wayne might be should contact Beds police immediately on 101, quoting crime reference MPC/765/17.
