This website is dedicated to the memory of Blake Hartley from Shropshire in the UK, who disappeared inexplicably and without a trace in Chamonix, France on the 8th August, 2004, just 2 days after his 25th birthday.

Two years later in January 2007 some remains were found in the river L'Arve, 60 kms south of where he vanished and forensic tests proved them to be Blake.



This website tells of the numerous searches and desperate struggle to find him during that period of time.

His mother, Sally, wrote an account of Blake’s last known movements and how his family, close friends and military colleagues searched in vain for him immediately after his disappearance – to read it please click here .


If anyone has any memories or photos of Blake then please feel free to add them to the site.
