Trying to locate John Arthur Wood who is my dad's first cousin. He was born in Carlisle in 1921 and trained as an electrician. He disappeared in c1962 leaving behind a wife (Norah) and 9 children (eldest 12 years old). Possibly married/living with a Vera Gardener.

He was working away in Sheffield at the time of his disappearance and just didn't return home. Possibly working for Park Gate Co in Carlisle in the mid 1970s. But has never been seen since.
