Search continues for missing 21-year-old

Jonas Hedegaard Hansen was last seen in Holstebro on Friday night

Jutland police forces, the Home Guard and the emergency management agency, Beredskabsstyrelsen, are continuing with their search for 21-year-old Jonas Hedegaard Hansen who went missing in Holsterbro sometime last Friday night.

Hansen was last seen with friends in the Jutland town late on Friday night. Family, friends and the authorities have been looking for the missing man since he failed to turn up where expected over the weekend.

Still hopeful
Hansen’s godfather, Preben Helstrup Thomsen, said he remained hopeful that Hansen is okay, but that he was alarmed that the normally socially active young man had not been heard from.

“There must have been an accident,” Thomsen told DR Nyheder. “Otherwise, Jonas would not have been missing for so long.”

A massive search was conducted over the weekend, including divers in the Store Å river that runs through Holstebro, helicopters, search dogs and a huge number of volunteers.

Hansen, whose phone is switched off, is 170 cm tall with a muscular upper body, blond hair, a receding hairline and beard.

When last seen on Friday night, he was wearing a dark blue t-shirt with a black shirt on top, a black leather jacket and dark jeans.
