Have you seen missing 56-year-old Bill Johnson?

Bill sent a text message to a friend the following day but has not been in contact with anyone since 2 May.
He is white, slim and has short grey hair and a scar on his upper lip.
"We have been looking for Bill for several days but have so far been unable to find him. We know that he is a regular churchgoer, usually in Chichester, but he could go to a service somewhere else so I am keen for the members of congregations in West Sussex to keep an eye out for him on Sunday in case he turns up for mass. We also know that he uses buses and trains to get around and that he particularly likes to go to the harbour area of Littlehampton and the seafront in the town. If you have any idea where Bill is, please get in touch with us."
A man who went out for a swim got into difficulties after being caught in fog. The 29 year old had gone for a swim near Littlehampton Harbour entrance. His brother who was onshore panicked when he disappeared out of sight and called for help. Littlehampton Coastguard Rescue Team and Littlehampton Lifeboats were sent to look for the missing man. He was retrieved from the water but did not require an ambulance.
National Maritime Operations Controller for the UK Coastguard, Ashley Rawson said; "A combination of the fog which can appear quickly this time of year and the tide can leave people in difficulty. You can think that you’re swimming and making progress but the tide can be against you and with the fog you have no idea where you are and how far you’ve got. This is the third incident like this in about a week which can be attributed to the warmer spring weather that catches the public unawares as the sea temperatures are still low."
