You can make third party referral to a firm of solicitors but if he refuses to have them then that is a dead end. Also a solicitor will need to know where he is and cannot find out independently of you. If you don't know where he was taken then I'm afraid it is a matter of waiting for him to call. The OIC might tell you which police station he is at. can I clarify anything for you? Jo
