The distraught mother of a missing teenager says there is a “cold, dark place” in her heart which grows darker every day that goes by without hearing from her only son.
More than two months after 18-year-old Miller Redpath was last seen at his home in Wenhaston, near Halesworth, his increasingly fearful mother has made a heartfelt appeal for her son’s safe return.
“I’m really worried about your safety and wellbeing and I just hope that everything’s OK,” said Anastasia Miller. “If you’re in trouble in any way, just remember there’s very little that can’t be sorted out with some good will, negotiation and a humble heart. You’re certainly not in any trouble with me, I just need you to get in touch.”
The pair had spent the weekend together before Miller’s disappearance and on the morning he was last seen, August 13, they had agreed to attend a sunrise service at Southwold beach. However the teenager was “grumpy” when Anastasia went to wake him and so she went alone. That was the last she saw him.
The widowed mother-of-one was not immediately concerned about Miller’s absence as he had a habit of making unannounced departures. But two days later, she started to worry.
“I realised he hadn’t taken his phone charger, his passport, any money, bank cards or his jacket and thought it was almost as if he intended to come back shortly but that something had gone horribly wrong,” she said.
“There’s a cold dark place in my heart that I’ve got to keep pushing back so that I can focus on the hope that he’s alive and we’ll see him again.” Miller is described as white, around 6ft tall, with brown curly hair, possibly dark coloured facial hair, a tattoo of a Celtic cross inside his left ankle and multiple left ear piercings.
A friend who heard from Miller just before he went missing, told Anastasia he may have had a Mohican haircut.
Anyone with information should call Halesworth police station on 101.
