Fears were growing last night as the whereabout of businessman Reggie Perrin, last seen boarding the doomed Titanic ship for a short break after a stressful time at his job with Sunshines Desserts.
Family and friends of Reggie Perrin gathered last night as they waitied to hear news from the rescue team at the sunken ship.
Wife Elizabath was too upset to speak to press but brother in law Jimmy Anderson said "Reggie has been missing for days. Bit of a cock up on the ship front".
Employer CJ said "I didn't get where I am today by losing valuable employees at sea in boat crashes. I expect to see Reggie at his desk first thing in the morning. Until then, I'm worried."
Secretary Joan Greengoss said "Poor Reggie has never been very lucky with transport. Every morning he arrived late to work after delays to his train - leaves on the line, snow, defective junction box, you name it - it's happened to Reggie.
