“We are working closely with the police, they are putting everything out at the moment.

Many residents across Nantwich have been helping in the search, and checking back gardens, sheds and other buildings.

He was last seen wearing a grey jumper, jeans and black or brown shoes. He is not thought to have been wearing a coat.

Anyone with any information is urged to call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 559 of 26th January.
