    Has he been paying cash, without a wage slip?
    Are you in college, day release? Would they know him?

    As a last resort, report him to the police for theft of your gear.

    Or as a missing person :)

    Regardless of gdpr you can still ask, you never know your luck.

    Try Googling him. Try calling from a different phone.

    If your work was legit, report him with the police. then at least you have a case number.

    also - the police can search for people on their system. They have authority and have special rights.
