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.

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.

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...
