“If you know where Lee Martin is, I urge you not to approach him but to speak to us completely anonymously by calling our UK Contact Centre which is open 24/7 on freephone number 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form.

“We know it can be difficult to talk about crime or those involved in illegal activity, especially if they are close to home, which is why our charity is here to help.

"We give people an option of remaining totally anonymous. If you know of Lee Martin’s location, please tell us - nobody will know you contacted us, and you may be eligible for a reward.”
