THE agony has continued over Christmas for the families of two men missing from Kirklees.
Andrew Lawrence, 58, has not been seen since 2.30pm on Monday, November 29, when he was spotted walking in Crossley Plantations on the moors above Holmfirth.
George Hazelhurst, 82, went missing in Thornhill on Monday, December 20.
Major searches of both areas have failed to turn up any clues on either of the missing men.
Mr Lawrence's wife, Dorothy, 56, said: "I have a lot of support from family and friends and the neighbours have been fabulous.
"I don't know what I would have done without them all.
"It's hard to put into words what the last month has been like because I don't really know myself. It's like my life has been put on hold."
She said her husband was in good health, never went to the doctor's and was a keen walker who was always well prepared when he set off.
"He liked all the scenery around here," she said.
"The weather was lovely on the day he went missing - sunny but cold and he'd have been wearing his sunglasses and carrying his normal glasses."
Huddersfield police said they were fearing the worst for Mr Lawrence and have urged anyone walking on the moors to be vigilant for any clues.
Insp Nick Harvey, of Huddersfield police, said: "There have been no sightings of Mr Lawrence and I have to say we do fear the worst.
"We are carrying on inquiries with friends and relatives, but we have no new leads.
"If anyone has any information at all which can help us we would urge them to come forward."
Mr Lawrence is originally from Essex and still speaks with a southern accent. On the day he went missing, he was wearing a brown waxed jacket, jeans and trainers.
The couple live on Brownhill Lane in Holmbridge.
Mr Hazelhurst had just moved to sheltered accommodation on Walker Street in Thornhill from Earlsheaton.
It is thought he may have been heading for a nearby care home where his 84-year-old wife, Kathlene, lives.
Mountain rescue team volunteers, police dogs and a helicopter carried out searches throughout the past week, but found no trace of him.
The grandad suffers from angina and TB. He was last seen walking down Ingham Road in Thornhill Lees.
His granddaughter, Michelle Spur, 25, said: "He could have wandered anywhere.
"I have walked from Dewsbury to Thornhill and looked in every field I can, but can't find him.
"We are trying to be strong, but the longer it gets the worse it gets."
Mr Hazelhurst is white, 5ft 10ins, slim, and balding with grey hair.
He was wearing navy trousers, a grey patterned jumper, tan shoes and may have been wearing a dark jacket.
Anyone who thinks they have seen either man or can help the inquiries should contact police on 0845 6060606.
