A man from Dudley accused of sexual offences has been missing for nearly four days and police believe he may be carrying a firearm.
It is understood Garry Foster has connections in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Staffordshire.
Mr Foster disappeared after allegations were made against him; these were of a serious sexual nature against people known to him and are part of a separate investigation by West Midlands Police.
Mr Foster is known to spend weekends or several days in remote locations, living off the land and using his firearms to shoot vermin and wildlife.
We're liaising with the farming community and urging them to be on the lookout for him and his vehicle, and similarly are asking walkers or hikers to report any potential sightings.
