Conner Jones, 18, was found dead lying in a hedge two days after a motorcycle crash.

He was found on the evening of Wednesday, June 21 alongside his blue Honda 125 motorbike, two days after he was reported missing by his family.

Now, his family are in search of Conner's missing half-brother Steve Jones, who is believed to be living in Norwich.

The family of seven were alerted to Steve Jones' whereabouts after a donation was made to A GoFundMe page in Conner's memory of £100, with the message 'rip little brother always in our hearts Steve and family x'. After realising that this may be the half-brother of Conner, the family are desperate to get in contact with him.

Half-brother Reece Jones, 19, has reached out to this paper to help find Steve Jones.

He said: 'The whole family is missing him. My half-sisters [Steve Jone's direct sisters] haven't seen or heard from him in over three years. They only know that he is in Norwich somewhere.

'We want him to know that we miss him and we need him here for Conner. We need him to attend the funeral. Hopefully he can get in contact with us. The family has been in complete shock and we just have no more to give.'

Steve Jones is the eldest son of father Pete Jones, 52, who used to live in Lowestoft before moving to West Hull.

'Steve fell out of our lives 17 years ago when we were living in Lowesoft at the time,' Reece Jones said. 'Our dad did have his number but around two months ago he must have got a new phone and we've now lost his number. Last thing we knew was he is living in Norwich.

'The last time I saw him I was two years old, so I have very little memories of him - just what I have been told.'

Conner had proposed to the love of his life Chloe Lowe, 18, two weeks before his death while on holiday in Mexico.

The family last saw him at an amusements park in Hull on the Monday at around 4pm.

To get in contact with the family about Steve Jone's whereabouts, ring Reece Jones on 07450562049 or contact the family through Facebook.
