Nigel has been missing since Monday and we know in our heart of hearts he is out there somewhere. We just need to find him. He is an amazing Dad, husband and granddad and we need him to come home. He hasn’t been feeling mentally very stable in the last few months and because of this we’re more concerned than ever. He was suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and just hasn’t been himself. When he left the supermarket, shopping with Mum, he left with no coat, wallet, phone, food or anything.
