Police say they are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of 47-year-old David Reid from Eastbourne.

David, who suffers from mental health problems, was reported missing on Sunday, April 2nd from his home in Hampden Terrace. He had spoken to police in London on Saturday 1st April when he was found sleeping rough on Westminster Bridge. He was also seen on the same day on Praed Street near Paddington Station.

He is white, 5' 10", of heavy build, with black spiked shoulder length hair and a goatee beard. He was last seen wearing a long green trench coat, blue jeans and flip flops.

Detective Inspector Neil Ralph said: "David now hasn't been seen for almost three weeks and we are getting even more concerned about him. We know he suffers with mental health problems and believe his health may have deteriorated in that time. We believe he is still in the London area as he has not returned home to Eastbourne."

Police are concerned for the welfare of missing 15-year-old Nam Van Nguyen from Ferring, near Worthing.

He had been living there since Monday, 10th April but on Thursday, 13th April, between 11am and 3pm he left his home address and has not been seen since.

Nam is described as Chinese, 5' 3", and of slim build with short, dark brown hair and brown eyes. He has an oriental accent but speaks little English.

He may be wearing black-and-white Nike tracksuit bottoms or blue/grey jogging trousers, white Nike trainers, a cream hooded jumper with a surfing motif, and a maroon and grey raglan-style long-sleeve top.

When last seen Nam had additional clothing he was carrying in an H & M brand carrier bag.

We're concerned about Nam because of his age and limited English. Please contact us if you have any information which can help us find him and make sure he is okay.
