He is 6ft tall with short brown hair and stubble. He was last seen wearing black jeans, a grey hoody and a 'Superdry' brown coat.

This is out of character for Damien and we are very keen to speak to anyone who has seen him or may know of his whereabouts.

At the moment we think he may still be Leamington and Warwick area so I would urge local residents to keep a look out for him and report any sightings.
