During the three-week search, officers have patrolled Furzton lake, but say there was “no evidence” of him being there.

Since then, police have received a report of an unconfirmed sighting of Mr Williams, who was reported to have been seen by a member of the public on a cycle path in the area of Furzton Lake at 11.15am on Thursday.

Mr Williams, who lives in Dorset, is described as white, slim, 6ft, with grey/black hair which is thin on top and longer at the sides. He was last seen wearing black shoes, black trousers and a black zip-up cardigan.

He is believed to have been carrying a duffle bag, which was possibly green.

Gary had been on a night out with work colleagues at Pink Punters in Watling Street, Milton Keynes, on March 20. He left the club at 2.24am with a colleague, and was seen getting a taxi from the BP garage in Fenny Stratford, Bletchley, at 2.56am.

They arrived at the Travelodge hotel and both men went to their separate rooms. He was seen on CCTV leaving the hotel alone at 3.51am.

Det Insp Ian Jarvis, from Milton Keynes Force, said: “If anyone has seen Gary in this area or elsewhere, please contact police as soon as possible. Gary has been missing for more than two weeks now.

“Our enquiries are continuing both within our Force area and by working with other police forces. We have had officers in the area of Furzton Lake, however there is no evidence to suggest Mr Williams has entered the lake.

“I would also like to appeal to anyone who has private CCTV footage in the Furzton area of which officers could view, to please contact police on 101.

“If anyone else has any information or has seen anyone matching the description of Gary please call police as soon as possible as his family are extremely worried about him.”

Anyone with information about Gary’s whereabouts is asked to contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101 quoting URN 862 20/3.
