Concerned friends and relatives have asked for information on the whereabouts of Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who hasn’t been seen since Thursday.
Jeremy, 50, has not been seen since he got into a ministerial car on Thursday evening and friends are concerned that Russian criminals may demand up to $300 for his safe return.
Jeremy is understood to be under considerable stress, and people close to him have said they’re worried and asked him to get in touch.
Members of the public have arranged search parties to look for the missing Health Secretary and are thrashing the undergrowth with large sticks just in case.
“Vanishing when things go horribly to shit was much more Gordon Brown’s sort of thing,” said search-party member Simon Williams.
“We’ve tried all the usual methods of getting in touch, such as arranging a photo opportunity and asking Diane Abbott to say something particularly bananas, but he’s not turned up.
“It might be we’re looking for his body,” added Simon, wistfully.
