The 43-year old man has not been seen by his family since August 2011, when he left home. His family, from Tydd St Mary have said they used to receive emails from him, but these stopped in January.

It is believed that Justian is in Europe somewhere, and it is known that he attended the Consulate in Barcelona in 2012 when he lost his passport.

However he left the building without waiting for assistance. He may have been in other countries as well, including Switzerland.

Justian's family are concerned for him, as they have not heard from him for so long.

Before he left he was diagnosed with a medical condition and he may not be taking any medication for this.

Anyone with information can contact Lincolnshire police.
