THERE is simply nothing more painful for a parent than knowing that their child has a problem or is suffering.

We can all feel for the family of Aaron Fiveash who has now been missing for two days. Aaron left home early on Monday with nothing – not even a shirt on his back. The 36-year-old has acted completely out of character say his mum and dad who just want their son home.

Today they appeal through the Daily Echo for Aaron to do that just that. For his description and police contact details, please see page two. Any parent would want to see him back safe and well, where he belongs.
