Teenage musician goes missing hours before G Live performance

Published at 4:57pm 4th March 2019.

A teenage musician from Japan has gone missing just hours before playing a gig at Guildford's G Live.

Sho Teshigawara is part of the Yamato Drummers who have been touring the UK since January.

The group were booked in to play at the Guildford venue at 8pm last Thursday (28 February), but Sho could not be found having last been seen at around 2pm.

Four days on from his disappearance, police and his family are growing increasingly concerned for his safety. The 19 year-old speaks very little English and is not believed to have much money with him.

Officers say the last confirmed sighting of Sho was at Dorking train station around 6.30pm that day, where he is thought to have been planning to take the 6.37pm train to London Victoria. 

He is said to have been wearing:

  • A dark jacket
  • Green khaki trousers
  • A blue rucksack

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen Sho, or anyone who was travelling on the 6.37pm train from Dorking to London Victoria.

The Yamato Drummers are next due to perform at the Peacock Theatre in Holborn on 12 March. Officers think there is a chance he may have been intending to travel there.

Anyone with information is asked to contacted Surrey Police by calling 101, quoting reference PR/45190022089.
