Police are continuing to appeal for information about a missing man who is believed to be in Cumbria.

Timothy Edwards has been missing from his home in Prestatyn, north Wales, since Friday 1st April.

Police believe the 45-year-old could be in the Lake District as enquiries suggest he drove on the M6 on Friday to the Carnforth area, north of Lancaster.

He's thought to have been using a black BMW with registration number KJ03 DJZ, which was found parked at Langthwaite Wood near to Crummock Water on 6th April.

Mr Edwards is described as white, between 6ft and 6ft3in tall and of medium build.

He has short dark coloured brown hair, which is receding, and was last seen wearing a grey and black striped Trespass jumper, blue jeans, grey and blue coloured walking boots.

"Timothy was reported missing on Sunday, April 3 to North Wales Police and his disappearance is out of character. With the discovery of his vehicle it is highly probable that the 45-year-old may still be in the Lake District.

"We are increasingly concerned for his welfare and are appealing to anyone who may have seen Timothy or know of his whereabouts to please contact us on 101.

"We are also appealing to Timothy himself to make contact with us and his family to let us know that he is safe and well."

– Sergeant David Macdonald, Cumbria Police
