51-year-old Robert Taylor was last seen setting off from his home in Sleaford at the beginning of February. Although he has disappeared before, concerns are growing, as Mr Taylor doesn't have his medication or his wallet with him.

Today, Joseph Taylor made a direct appeal to his brother:

Whatever's happened in the past Robert, I would like to think that we were very close and we could confide in each other. So please ring me, confide in me and let's get that bound, friendship, brotherliness back together again.
