I hate to be the person typing this, but I feel that as a community it needs to be told;

Oli Lewis, known on the forum as nmt_oli, has been involved in an accident, and is currently missing.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, Oli left work at Dominos pizza, and began the journey from Portsmouth to Datchet, to his Fathers house, near Windsor.

Around 0130 Oli was involved in an accident, on a stretch of the A308 near the M25, running very close to the river Thames.

Nobody is quite sure of what happened, but we currently know that Oli was concious at the time, as the skid marks show him reacting to loosing control of the car.

The skid marks lead down the road, before turning 90 degrees and stopping. One can only assume that this means the car became airborne at this point. No landing place has been found yet.

So far, a search team have found the front bumper, windscreen, rear number plate, and a door from Oli's car. The shell of the car is yet to be found. No sign of Oli has been found yet either.

Divers are searching the river bed, but have not yet found any trace of Oli, or the car

The location of the accident is thought to be here: Googlemaps/Datchet

At this time we must remain optimistic, and until Oli's car is found, we cannot be sure what happened.

I ask that you show your sympathy for Oli's Mum Carol, and his family and friends. We cannot even begin to imagine how hard it must be for them not knowing where Oli is.

As many of you know, Oli has always been the sensible one in our group. very talented, very clever, and great at just about anything he decided to do. He was warm and caring, and never thought twice about helping people out, even if he didn't know them!

He was a careful and safe driver, and well knew the limits of his car, which he had built entirely his self. One can only hope he will be found.

Please come home soon Oli, we miss you mate
