Officers are becoming increasingly concerned for a missing Poole man and are appealing for the public’s help to find him.

Nicholas Earle, who is 43 years old, was last seen at his home in Solly Close at around 11.30pm on Saturday 24 September.

He left on his bicycle, a black MuddyFox mountain bike with a brown seat, but has not come back home.

Nicholas is white, five feet ten inches tall, of medium build and has blue eyes and short light ginger hair. He also has numerous tattoos on his arms and hands.

“We are very concerned that he may come to some harm and we need to find him as soon as possible.

“I urge anyone who might know where Nicholas may be or has seen a man matching his description to please contact Dorset Police urgently.

“Also, if anyone has seen the described mountain bike, please get in touch.

“If Nicholas sees this message, please contact us as we and your family want to ensure you are safe and well.”
