A MAN has today been charged with the murder of missing Wisbech man Terry McSpadden.

Father-of-two Mr McSpadden, 24, who lived in Outwell Road, Elm, was last seen in March 2007, visiting a cashpoint on his way home from a pub in Wisbech.

Police have carried out a number of searches in and around the house he was living in, in Outwell Road, and the surrounding countryside.

Following a case review by the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, Jonathan Porter of Outwell Road, Elm, has been charged with murder and has been detained in police custody.

He will be appearing before Norwich Magistrates tomorrow.

Last year, police carried out a major search of the countryside around the area of Mr McSpadden’s last known movements.

Norfolk police said there was a “strong suspicion” that he was no longer alive.

Last November officers also dug up the garden of Fir Tree Cottage, where Mr McSpadden lived.

Mr McSpadden spent the evening before his disappearance on the other side of Wisbech, at the Locomotive Inn.

On leaving the pub, which stands on the town’s Lynn Road, he visited a 24-hour Tesco just before 1am, withdrawing money from a cashpoint, before being driven to his house on Outwell Road, Elm.

Mr McSpadden is believed to have gone to bed on returning home. The following morning, he did not turn up for work.
