07/07 War on Britain: OUR LOST LOVED ONES; Family and Friends Trawl Hospitals and Streets for the Missing
Byline: By EMILY NASH
ANGUISHED families and friends of people still missing after the terror blasts spent yesterday searching for their loved ones with desperate phone calls and visits to hospitals.
As they hoped for the best and feared the worst, some even trawled streets near where the killer bombs went off clutching photographs of lost relatives on the off-chance that somebody could shed light on their whereabouts.
The brother of missing PA Laura Webb last night told how he and his 29-year-old sister's boyfriend Chris Driver have been involved in a frantic search for her.
Teacher David Webb, 38, said Laura has not been heard from since she left her North London home to go to work in Paddington. It is feared she was on the Circle Line train that was hit at Edgware Road. Holding up a picture of her, distraught David added: "We've been using the help lines but have heard nothing back. I have been going round the hospitals with my wife and Chris.
"She is not the sort of person to stay out of touch with her loved ones. It wouldn't be like her not to phone. A colleague of hers emailed me to say she had not turned up for work so I phoned her mobile but it went straight to voicemail and has done so ever since."
Chris, 28, said: "I'm just desperate to find her. We hope she is being looked after somewhere."
Friends of devoted Christian James Adams told how he vanished after calling his mum in Peterborough to tell her he had arrived at King's Cross station and was on his way to work.
The 32-year-old mortgage endowment consultant also sent a text to close mate Amanda Garratty with plans for the weekend.
Amanda, 41, said: "I just hope he is in a hospital somewhere but we have heard nothing." Colleagues at Deloitte & Touche where James works fear he was in the Piccadilly Line blast.
Family and friends of Rachelle Yuen believe she too was on the same train. Her picture and name were listed on a missing poster left at King's Cross Station.
The heartbroken grandmother of hairdresser Philip Beer told how he went missing after his sister Stacey escaped King's Cross with injuries.
Margaret Power said Stacey called home in a panic to say she could not find her 20-year-old brother, of Borehamwood, Herts, who she lost in the chaos. She added: "I need someone to help me, the police can't tell me anything."
The brother-in-law of Phillip Russell, 29, told how he was evacuated from the Tube before boarding a bus at Euston - then going missing.
John Steadman, 39, said: "The most frustrating thing for us is that we can't find anything out." Healthcare Commission analyst James Mayes, 28, is missing. It is thought he travelled through King's Cross station on his way to a seminar.
Ciaran Cassidy, 22, of Finsbury Park, was last seen heading in to work in Chancery Lane. His sister Lisa, 26, said: "He never got there." Oil firm executive Anthony Williams, 22, from Hendon, North West London, was feared to be on the Tavistock Square bus.
The husband of Gladys Wundowa was last night searching for the 53-year-old. Emmanuel said the mum-of-two vanished after finishing her cleaning job at 8.50am.
He added: "I suspect Gladys either took the train or the bus. …
