The search continued for a missing man from Wilford who police are growing increasingly concerned about.

Michael Bugg has not been seen since leaving the Southbank Bar in West Bridgford at around 1.10am on Sunday, 21st August 2016.

Extensive searches are being carried out in the area adjacent to the River Trent. Specialist boat teams have also been deployed to assist with the search.

It is very out of character for Mr Bugg to go missing.

He has had no contact with family or friends and has not attended work – all of which is causing concern for those who know Mr Bugg.

We would also urge everyone to look at the picture of Mr Bugg and to let us know if they have seen him since the last sighting.

– Det Ch Insp Karen Pearson, Nottinghamshire Police

The 39-year-old is described as white and around 5ft 7ins tall. He's of medium build with short, light brown hair and was last seen wearing a blue shirt, dark grey trousers and brown shoes.

Anyone with information which might assist is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police immediately on 101 quoting incident number 902.
