That website is ace. Its like really thinks he's in Thunedrbirds. Be 'kin hilarious if it wasnt so scarey. :o :o :o

I think the Peak Park had probs with similar looney tunes who tried to get a (part-time) ranger job but failed selection process - then started to appear on the moors in a red fleece with 'Ranger' sewn on (by his mum no doubt) pretending to be a ranger to members of the public.

Can we have him in the Eldon - just f'laugh like.

That's pretty much what he does, Kate - he dupes people. He seems addicted to it, too, as it's something he's been doing for years and years and years. Plenty of trusting people out there and looks like you're one of them.

Put another way:-

He's has hallmarks of being a persistant con artist.

... Another poor lamb!

 :doubt:

I'm sure you'll get a load of private messages, rather than publicly posted info on the infamous Mr. Moorhouse.

Is he still the inventor, President and only member of the International/National Rescue Team?
Has he finished climbing all the highest mountain peaks in the world yet?
Has he taken unsuspecting trusting people into the realm of the valley of the shadow of death once more?....

Someone might be interested but perhaps we will never know.

Kate, he is dangerous, I knew him, lived with him for nearly a year. My friend was the one that got hurt at Giant Hole, it actually happened on my Birthday when I was 19. He likes getting vulnerable girls and is extremely manipulative. Luckily the times I trusted him with caving and climbing no one got hurt but it could have been me that got hurt on my Birthday, thank goodness I chose to go to the cinema instead. Please run for the hills. You are worth so very very much more.

Andrew Moorhouse is still the liar and conman that is suggested on the Internet forums however is now using a different name...

I met Andrew Gilleard through a dating website, first impressions are that he is a gentleman. Andrew told me that he was an active member of search and rescue as well as an outwards bounds instructor. He also stated that he was an active reserve in the army, often working with the civilian police. The skills that this man claims to have is unbelievable (I know that now..) he slowly fed me a pack of lies about who he is and what he does. As I have now found out Andrew Moorhouse is his real name and he is a compulsive liar and cannot be trusted. He has not got any outdoor qualifications but does come across as knowing what he is doing - but he doesn't. What his aim is I'm not sure but there is an element of financial gain. If you are female and says he loves you, wants to marry you and hasn't felt that way since his fiancé died - well he's said it all before. There is so much more I could say about this man however all I'm going to say is avoid this man.

Nope. Ka registered in June 2011, K8te66 in March 2011, Lostgirl in July 2011, and Newbie in March this year. All different emails addresses, different IP addresses. Happy to conclude they are distinct and separate, rather than one and the same person.

Strangely enough. I remember being a bit worried about public chastisement of said fellow, and may have posted as such several years ago. He may well be a delusional bad biff but something left me feeling a bit uncomfortable.

Indeed but FFS, Occam's Razor surely suggests that it's unlikely that one person would do that much chopping and changing to say similar things about the same person.

Over a period of 2+ years, with different email addresses? A woman scorned may well have fury greater than hell but would just post straight from the heart, rather than create aliases to say the same thing.

Sorry, but it doesn't figure to me that one person would go to that extent whereas it makes perfect sense, reading about the man, to see that different women, similarly mistreated, would do so.

We'll just have to see what turns up in the next few years then I guess. Anyways, as mods can you not email the people directly to enquire as to the veracity of the allegations, after all having them unsubstantiated on an open forum could cause problems.

But as I said, just my suspicious mind......

I have not registered previously under different user name, I was not even aware of any of this information until march 2013. I did not meet Andrew until January 2013, when I googled Andrew Gilleard nothing came up. My reasons for posting were to provide information about Andrew Gilleard/Moorhouse to hopefully prevent anyone else being conned by this man. I have contacted some of the other people personally and been provided with information which all ties in with my experiences. He is also known to the police. I totally agree that there is a fine line between providing information for public interest and slander. If it was untrue he would have just cause to get any information removed and would be very easy with the connections he claims to have!

Post by: Rose on October 01, 2013, 10:07:09 am
Good Morning to all who are interested,

I too, like Newbie 2013 have very recently had the dubious pleasure of Andrew, he contacted me on a dating website a couple of weeks ago using Lohtse as his profile name. After a few days of (very gentlemanly) messages he offered his phone number and since Thursday we have been texting and have spoken a couple of times, I was fed the same lies as Newbie (and god knows how many others!) regarding the Military/SAR etc, etc, etc. He went into extaordinary detail and seemed very knowledgeable about Mountain Rescue/SAR. Over this weekend I was a hares whisker away from picking him up to go caving somewhere in Sheffield that he suggested (I have googled it and cannot find ANYTHING!). Because I thought he was a member of MRT and had 'everything that I would need' at no time did I feel that I could be in any danger and I suspect this is the case with others he may have lied to. Over the weekend he had some 'call outs' and 'had to go to base' which as a MRTL I would expect, I have since tried to find info on these events on various MRT websites/Facebook but alas nothing.... Only on Sunday night he texted saying that he had been providing First Aid and Safety Cover at Sheffield Film Festival, my first thought was what safety cover could possibly be needed to watch films??? Call it female intuition but that was when I really started to smell a rat....I searched the internet for the said Film Festival, the only ones I could find happened in Spring 2013 and the next is scheduled for Spring 2014 (looks good though!) I did yesterday however find out that he was on Sheffield Forum (username Lohtse) and had joined the Sheffield Shamblers a few years ago, there seemed to be something 'interesting' going on there, let's put it this way you could sense the friction (could Andrew have 'fanned the flames???').
I was all set to give Andrew the benefit of the doubt but there was a niggle at the back of my mind that just wouldn't go away so last night while on cooking duty armed with a glass of red I typed in my search bar Andrew Lohtse Mountain Rescue Team Leader Sheffield (I didn't know his surname)and stumbled upon this site THANK GOD!!!
I stayed up way past my usual bedtime to read all the 7 pages plus about this topic and can see both sides of the arguement, as a female who almost put her trust in him thinking that he had all the skills and safety awareness (beleive me he sounds very convincing, polite, friendly, knowledgeable etc,etc,etc) because he was very good at saying he'd been 'called on duty/had to go to 'base' and had all the answers to my questions. PLEASE DO NOT CLOSE THIS TOPIC DOWN it is the ONLY source of info on this 'gentleman' and people need to know. As I have said I took the time to read ALL the posts on here about this man, I can see all sides and have made my mind up if he is Hero or Villain. I know that he has done nothing illegal BUT he is befriending people based on lies about his involvement with a very, very worthwhile and respected organisation. As I am someone who has raised money for Mountain Rescue (I have a friend who was in RPMRT in Lancashire) I find it very hard to swallow....
For all those who wish for this topic to be closed ask yourself this...Would you want your daughter, sister, grandaughter etc,etc,etc coming into contact with this man? I know I have to take resposability for my own actions but I'm the kind of person who always tries to see the good in the world, now I feel very foolish indeed.
For anyone who wants to know he is on POF username Lohtse, his profile is very, very good and sadly he will dupe many more women....
As my last contact with him was only yesterday I still have his phone number, he gave me his address on Saturday (if it's the right one) and I will be keeping this should any authorities need it at a later date. I will of course contact the dating site to warn of his dishonesty but sadly there isn't a lot that they can do, after all it's not a crime.....

Thank you to everyone who has contributed, I have a clearer picture now.

Its not a crime until his recklessness puts someone in danger (as it already has done), so I would argue it is!

Post by: Rose on October 01, 2013, 06:31:50 pm
Hi Alex, I'm not sure what he did to put someone in danger, I can see that there are references to it on here but nothing specific is jumping out at me.

I'd be very grateful if someone could enlighten me as some of the messages on the Sheffield Forum (Shamblers Walks) spoke quite highly of him so I'm confused to say the least!

I have an update also, he has been in contact with me today offering to meet up (Peak District Area), I haven't said 'no' yet incase anyone one here fancies coming along as a chaperone to see for themselves what lies (or not) he can offer.

Again many thanks

Just literally found out he has history on the UK Climbing website too but I haven't started digging yet, watch this space....

To Bograt, I would be happy to try to set up a meet for you with him (unless he's rumbled that I'm on to him) Just say the word and I will give it my best shot! (no pun intended!)

Hi,

Like both Newbie2013 and Rose I have today been shown this site by my sister. I have basically been fed the same lines as Rose, down to the Sheffield film festival (which is where I actually met him). He comes across as pleasant, caring etc and despite my doubts about the army, believable.


It's good that this site is here, but I feel people should know he told me his surname was 'Spencer'

A police search is underway for a man who went missing from Sheffield this morning. Andrew Marshall, aged 46, was last seen around 7:45am this morning, Monday December 17, in the Loxley area of Sheffield.

He also goes by the surname Moorhouse.   

Sheffield Police say concerns are growing for his welfare, and they are urging anyone who has seen him to come forward.   Anyone who has seen Andrew should call South Yorkshire police on 101 quoting incident number 180 of December 17.

AH, I see he has reared his ugly head again, this time with another alias, Marshall.

Further to the above, he apparently went missing last week as well, before being traced on the 15th December, before doing a bunk again. Perhaps the police could be persuaded to drop him off somewhere a little more secure?

Aviemore police appeal for sightings of missing walker Andrew Moorhouse

(https://www.grough.co.uk/lib/img/editorial/Missing-Andrew-Moorhouse-1200.jpg)

Police have appealed to walkers for sightings of a man who has gone missing in the Cairngorms.

Andrew Moorhouse is reported to have gone walking alone on forest paths between Aviemore and Coylumbridge and the Cairngorm Mountains.

The 46-year-old Sheffield man is believed to have arrived in Aviemore by public transport late on Saturday.

Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team members have joined the search for the missing walker, who is described as 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall, stocky build, with red to greying short hair, dressed in outdoor clothing and carrying a backpack. Police Scotland said Mr Moorhouse speaks with an English accent.

A spokesperson said: “Police are urging anyone in the area, particularly walkers and cyclists in rural locations, to keep a look out for a male matching Andrew’s description and to report any sightings via 101.

“Similarly, if you have any information that could assist officers in tracing Andrew please make contact as a matter of urgency, quoting ‘Storm’ incident 5422 of 15 June 2019.”

Efforts to trace Mr Moorhouse during the course of Sunday failed to locate the missing 46-year-old, with officers continuing to search alongside the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team.

Police in the Lake District have appealed for sightings of a man who sparked a similar alert in Scotland three months ago.

Cumbria Constabulary said it was concerned for the welfare of Andrew Moorhouse who was last seen on Monday in the area.

The last known sighting of the 47-year-old was about 9.50pm on Lake Road, Keswick.

A police spokesperson said: “It is believed Andrew went walking in the Keswick area.”

He is described as white, 5ft 11ins (1.80m) tall with short hair and a ginger beard. He was last seen wearing a yellow Gore-Tex jacket, black trousers, black cap and carrying a large rucksack.

Police said: “Anyone with information should contact police on 101. Officers would also like to urge Andrew to contact this number if he sees this appeal.”

In June this year, Mr Moorhouse, of Sheffield in South Yorkshire, was reported missing in the Aviemore area. Police Scotland and Cairngorm Mountain Rescue mounted a search for the man, who was believed to have gone walking alone on forest paths between Aviemore and Coylumbridge and the Cairngorm Mountains.

Two days later, officers said Mr Moorhouse had been found safe and well.

Pretty sure he does his own searching and rescuing of himself.

Does anyone actually know him? Does he have friends? Surely this guy has a genuine problem?

Someone clearly knows him and where he goes or they wouldn't repeatedly be reporting him missing.

I wondered the same. Could it be that he is attention seeking, perhaps he goes off trekking then reports himself as missing and waits to be found. Perhaps he needs professional help?

You either missed the point, or you're being anally retentive. Either way, I'm not bothering with you. Bore off kiddo.

I think the point here is that this chap for reasons unknown goes missing often and the police  and other emergency services are there to help search for and find him. They do not question or judge - they do their job and  big thank-you to them.

But he really does need some help in other ways and I hope he gets that help!
