West Mercia Police are appealing for help from the public in tracing a missing 40-year-old man.

Vincent Daniel Quinn, of Hereford, was last seen on Tuesday 21 December 2015 in Pomona Place, Hereford, and has not been seen or heard from since.

He was due to travel to Scotland after Christmas via coach, but it is not known if he made the journey.

Vincent is 5'7'' and of a large build with black hair, and speaks with a broad Scottish accent.

He has a tattoo on his left shoulder of a Celtic band and was last seen wearing light coloured trousers, a dark jacket and a dark coloured baseball cap.

After conducting our own enquiries we are still unclear on Vincent's location, or as to whether he made the journey to Scotland.

We are keen to locate him in order to perform a safe and well check.

If anyone recognises Vincent's photo and may have seen him or knows of his whereabouts, please call police on 101.

Vincent's family are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare, and say that his disappearance is out of character.

Police re-appeal for help in Hereford murder case

Police investigating the murder of a man who was killed in Hereford on Father's Day say people who have information about the case need to come forward now more than ever.

They say the thought of Christian Bagley's young daughter spending Christmas without her father is "unimaginable".

Christian was killed as he walked home after visiting his 2-year-old daughter in June. He suffered two fatal stab wounds to the back and arm as he walked under the Hunderton Bridge.
