‘We’re so thankful for all the support we have been given’ says brother of missing UEA student

Nick Sadler has been missing since 2am last Friday

The search continues for missing UEA student, Nick Sadler, who has been missing for almost a week.

Nick was last seen at 2am on Friday 8th. Norfolk police have confirmed Nick is still missing, and that enquiries are on-going.

Close friend of Nick, Ashleigh, told The Norwich Tab: "We all just want people to know that Nick is the most selfless person there is, and this is so out of character, which is why it's so scary.

"Anyone who brings it up in conversation is helping us massively by spreading the word. We are unbelievable grateful for all those showing love and support. We are just desperate to find him."

"Everyone is getting involved and it's been really lovely to see people unite like this over such an important cause."

Speaking to The Norwich Tab, Nick's brother Oliver told us that he and the rest of Nick's family were "incredibly grateful for the support, especially from Nick's close friends.

"He had always loved music, reading, and loved his family and friends. Nick is such a sensitive and giving guy."

Asked how students could help, he said "everyone please just keep sharing Nick's face and name. Join the Facebook group 'Help Find Nick' and please keep joining and helping us."
