Tayside Police Inspector Ally Robertson said: "As time goes by our concerns for Ralph increase as, more significantly, does the concerns of his loved ones. We would urge him to get in touch, either with ourselves, his family or friends as soon as possible so we can establish he is safe and well.

''Equally, anyone who has seen him or who knows where he is now should call us immediately on 101, or speak to their local officer.''

Ralph is six feet four inches tall and of muscular build, with short cropped fair hair.

When last seen he was wearing black trainers, dark blue or black jogging bottoms, and a blue fleece. He had a blue rain jacket with him when he left his home.
