Home Safe after 4 years Missing!

I have had an email about my long lost white cat from someone who has seen a white cat they think is stray.  They did a websearch and found my details on your website - thanks.

He is in the next village to us, probably 1 mile from our house as the crow flies.  We have seen him twice from a distance of about 10 metres and he looks a lot like Muppet so it really could be him.  He is living feral so no-one can get near him, but we put up posters and have had many calls including a lady who tried to catch him last summer and she said he has been around the area for well over a year.

We have borrowed a trap from the rspca but he is so jumpy I'm not sure if the trap will work and we can't get near enough to him to give him food eta as he just runs away when he sees people.  Do you have any other suggestions for catching him?

Fantastic, unbelievable news… we caught him in the RSPCA trap last night.   We bought him home and shut him in the spare room on his own as he was so frightened. 
Taken him to the vets today,– he is Muppet!  
He is very dirty and riddled with fleas and worms as you would expect, but otherwise healthy.   He has stayed at the vets to be neutered and checked for FIV.

Original details:
Muppet was six months old went he went missing on 28 April 2004 and is coming up for SEVEN YEARS OLD now.

He is not neutered or microchipped.  As a Tom, Muppet may have wandered too far or  jumped in a car so maybe travelled into another county.

Or locally did anyone give a home to a white kitten in 2004? His owner understands that Muppet may have a new home and is happy. Karen would like to know he is safe.

Muppet has a small patch of grey fur on his head (seen on close inspection).  He has a large bushy white tail and long hair on the back of his hind legs.
