IT has now been just over a month since Swindon man Bradley Porter was last seen.

Now his heartbroken mother, Abigail Somerfield, has made an emotional plea for his safe return

Speaking to the BBC, Ms Somerfield said he had been "soul destroyed". 

"It doesn't matter what - if you're in trouble, if you owe money. If you're scared," she said.  "We can overcome anything. We need you home. You are everything to me."

Abigail last saw her son a couple of days before he went missing. 

He is understood to have been wearing black jeans, a white hoodie with zips on the front pockets and chunky white trainers on the day he went missing.

He was also wearing a lightweight waterproof jacket with bright orange patches on the shoulders and a black leather waist bag across his chest.

His mother also confirmed that he has not used his bank cards during the time he has been missing, and there has been no activity on his social media accounts.

The BBC said she also thanked everyone who has been involved in looking for him, either physically, or by sharing the appeals

She added: "He is loved more than he could ever know."

The 25-year-old was last seen between Saturday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6.

He is thought to have left his home in Penhill Drive in the early hours of the morning on his mountain bike. 

The Adver ran a story on Bradley being missing five days later, and then the police issued a public appeal 12 days after he first disappeared on August 18. 

The search for Bradley has involved both Swindon and Bournemouth, as Bradley's sister Saskia lives there. 

Police renewed their appeal several times since then, with senior detectives also appealing directly to Mr Porter to get in touch on August 24. 

Detective Inspector Penny Andrews said: “If you don’t feel confident talking directly to a police officer, I would urge you to reach out to someone you feel you can trust who can pass on a message of reassurance to your family.”

Another renewed appeal was made at the start of this month.

A police spokesperson said: "Bradley’s family are extremely concerned for his welfare and would like him to make contact.

"Anyone with information is asked to call us on 101 quoting log 54230083550

"You can leave information without giving your name by calling CrimeStoppers on 0800 555111."
