‘Something’s gone wrong’: Kiwi cameraman goes missing in the UK

Missing New Zealand man Joseph Day.

“At that point I really panicked,” she said. “I ran upstairs and the bed was made and the blinds were open and everything was shut up.”

She said she assumed he went out for a vegan pizza when he stopped messaging.

“Something is preventing him from coming back; there’s no way he’s choosing not to come home to me,” she said. “His mum hasn’t heard from him and he adores his mum.”

She reported his disappearance to police a few hours after arriving home.

Day’s phone and Facebook Messenger accounts are still showing as active but there has been no response to their calls and messages.

His WhatsApp shows he was last online around 2pm on Saturday afternoon (BST). The couple often chat using Facebook Messenger.

His school friend Tyler Rakich described Day as a quiet, reserved and shy man who did not yet have friends in Bristol. He said Day was not the partying type, making his disappearance inexplicable.

“They moved to Bristol in January from London so he literally knows no one, he doesn’t have any friends in Bristol and was looking forward to a night in watching some movies,” he said from Auckland.

“It’s ridiculously out of character for him, even when he’s drunk or out he always contacts Kelsey.

“So I’m 100 per cent sure that something’s gone wrong here. He’s not just going to walk in off the street after 30 minutes. He’s either in hospital or in a ditch so we need all the help we can get to find him,” he said.

Day is believed to have left their home on Pembroke Road, Clifton, on foot as his bike is still in their flat.

Mulcahy said he would have been wearing a cap and dark jacket, is about 180 centimetres tall, has an athletic build and tattoos on both his arms.

Police in Avon and Somerset have been contacted to see if they can trace his phone’s location. The local police force had not set up any public appeals as of Monday afternoon (BST), more than 24 hours after he was first reported missing.

Mulcahy and her friends from London have been putting up posters of Day around Bristol appealing for the public’s help.

Mulcahy’s father and Day’s parents left on the first available flight from New Zealand and are expected to arrive in the UK in the next day.
