Author Alan Place has not been seen since he wheeled himself out in the streets at the beginning of the barrage.
He was last seen pushing his wheelchair out of the radiation shelter. His wife, Linda, of 35 years cried bitterly as she called out "Come back, love, we need you!"
Alan's last words were "Why? The country has gone to hell in a hand basket, and the local government impose such high charges that I can't pay our bills."
