A search is under way for a 32 year old male who disappeared while going to the toilet. John Daly, a computer programmer from Liverpool, was reported missing by his wife yesterday afternoon.
Olivia Daly raised the alarm yesterday after her husband did not return from a visit to the toilet.
“He was always taking ages in the bathroom, he would say that it was his special “me time”, so I passed no remarks but when an hour passed I knew there was something up.
Olivia with the help of a neighbour was able to break through the door of the bathroom where they found little more than the trousers and runners of John beside the toilet.
“When we got through the door we were initially hit with the smell so we had to retreat for a while but when we went back in it was quite clear that he had fallen down the toilet while flushing.
Local fire bridges and council workers are working on locating Mr Daly who is expected to be flushed out at a nearby treatment plant in the next 24 hours.
“There is no doubt, he will be found alive and well. Apart from the smell of crap there will not be a bother on him” stated Mike Aldershot of the council treatment committee.
Experts in the field say that “disappearance by toilet” is much more common than one might think with over 50 cases reported in the UK and Ireland alone in the last two years
