It's very sad that he hasn't been missed yet, but that will help police/mnedics etc narrow down their search a bit.

I had a cramtag for a few years (I stopped when it got too involved with the COCO charity and I got inundated with requests for money) - I think I should wear start wearing my parkrun wristband (although I do always take my phone which has ICE data).

All kinds of reasons why someone might not be missed for a couple of days, particularly in a school half-term week.

That is so sad

I wear one of these attached to my Garmin therefore I never forget to take it.

The watch tag is a jolly good idea, that's the one thing I would never forget to wear on a run.

So desperately sad. Heard about this whilst away during the week. Has there been any more news? I hope by now that the poor chap has been identified, my thoughts are with those close to him.

There's nothing new on the Cambridge news site, but I don't think they update it at the wekend

I have been given a onelife ID by my partner. I have yet to order it. I often disappear off on my own (at least three times a week and often work alone in clients gardens) and he doesn't trust on emergency services calling the number programmed in my Garmin startup screen. I also don't often carry the Garmin, or the ICE details in my unlocked mobile... Must get on with that tag! There is room for allergies on there as well: wasps and diclofenac. Quite useful info if found collapsed somewhere!

You don't really think about how vulnerable life is...

Cambridge is full of contractors... His famy may be in another part of the country, unaware... :(
