Police in Merseyside are appealing for the public's help in finding missing Wirral man John Ankers.

The 28-year-old was last seen leaving his home on Sandfield Road, Upton at around 10.15am on January 20th.

He did not turn up at work and has not been seen or been in contact since.

John may have travelled to Birkenhead by bus on Sunday morning.
