Adam is white, 5ft 6” tall, of slim build with dark brown short cropped hair. He has a ‘BRISTY’ tattoo on the right-hand side of his neck, and was last seen wearing a tracksuit top with a light blue chest and back area, and navy blue arms; navy blue tracksuit bottoms and dark blue trainers.

His son is white, and was last seen wearing a light cream woolly hat, cotton navy blue tracksuit top and matching tracksuit bottoms. His pushchair is black with white and black stripes in the seat area.

“We are keen to locate Adam and ensure that both he and his son are safe and well. It is out of character for him not to return home and we hope the appeal helps to gain information about his whereabouts or to encourage Adam to make contact with us.”

This figure is believed to have been boosted by a further change in the law in December, which allowed couples to convert civil partnerships into marriage.
