A disgraced son has pleaded for help finding his father’s ashes he lost in a Tesco bag for life after “one last trip to the beach” turned into a nine-hour pub crawl.
Stan Blade, 39, planned to make a TikTok video of himself visiting fun rides on Southend Pier, Essex, with dad Stephen Jewett’s ashes as a final farewell.
But instead of visiting dodgems at Southend Pier with his dad, he bumps into a group of old friends and ends up in a pub crawl in his former hometown.
At one point during the crawl, as he drops six cans of Stella and five pints of beer, Stan misplaces the shopping bag containing a wooden coffin holding the ashes of his father, who died at the age of 60.
He discovered his blunder only after he finally got home after midnight on 18 March having drunk six cans of Stella and five pints of ale in a few taverns.

“My dad was a really funny guy and he would absolutely love the idea of riding a roller coaster with his ashes by my side,” said Stan. Pictured: Stan with his late father Stephen

He confesses to his angry mother, Emma Hopkins, who had previously told him he could not get the ashes out of her house.
“I came home,” said musician Stan, “and I asked my stepmother, ‘Where’s your daddy?'” “
“She wasn’t happy with me at all and I don’t blame her.”
He added, ‘My dad was a really funny guy and would have absolutely loved the idea of riding a roller coaster with his ashes by my side.
He had a great sense of humor, so I just wanted to do something to pay tribute to that since I haven’t been to my hometown in a while.
The idea was to take him to the beach and go on bumper cars and get ice cream, all the stereotypical things you do at the beach.

“But I ended up bumping into friends and getting drunk along the waterfront.”
Realizing his father is missing, Stan goes straight back to search every pub he went to with his friends but no one has seen his father.
He visited Chinnerys, The Cornucopia and a hotel bar on Marine Parade in Southend-on-Sea, but no one saw his father.

He then made a plea to TikTok for information on the whereabouts of the ashes.
In the video filmed the same night for “The Missing Person”, Stan explains that he was visiting his hometown from Leicester, where he now lives, to see family and friends when he came up with the idea.
If his ashes (pictured before their disappearance) aren’t found soon, Stan will report him missing to the police.

“I convinced my stepmother to do TikTok,” he said, still glancing at the video from the tape crawl.
“ I thought it would be funny – put him in dodgem cars, put him in the big wheel, give him a quick hat and a stick of rocks and stuff.
“You didn’t want me to do it, but I did it anyway.”
In response to his question Are you ready to see the funny side yet? No, I’ve had this Ash for 12 years.
I told you not to take them to the waterfront. All you want to do is do stuff on TikTok.
Stan’s father Stephen Jewett, 60, passed away in 2011, from complications from alcoholism.
If his ashes are not found soon, Stan will report him missing to the police.
