Hi Folks, just become aware of a chap called Adam Perkins who has gone missing in the Great Ayton area, Yorkshire. He was well known as an explorer of mines. Police have located his vehicle but he has not been seen or heard of since Monday.

Does anyone know of any old workings (drift mines ect.) that might be within the that area? Obviously not encouraging anyone to go and look but any useful information could at least be passed on to the relavent authorities if we have such information.
Here is the original post that the police have issued.

Police have issued an urgent appeal to locate missing Sheffield man, Adam Perkins who is thought to be in the Great Ayton area.
24-year-old Adam was last seen and heard from on Monday 20 March at around 8pm when he left his home address in Sheffield to go camping.
Officers have since located his car in the Great Ayton area and are conducting searches to find Adam. He has visited the area previously to go caving.
He is described as around 5ft 10in, with a slim build, a light beard and brown hair.
It's thought he was wearing brown/khaki trousers and a black fleece jacket.
Any immediate sightings of Adam should be reported to North Yorkshire Police on 999. Please quote reference 12230051876.
