Concerns are growing for a Poole man who was last seen a week ago leaving his home address on foot.
30-year-old Matthew Purser was last seen at 7pm on Saturday 21st December when he walked along Jellicoe Close.
Matthew is white, 6ft, of a large build with short dark hair and pale skin.
He was wearing a grey hooded jumper with a navy body warmer, tracksuit bottoms and trainers.
Police Constable Dave Mearing, of Poole Police, said: "I understand that Matthew had become upset before he left and his family is concerned that he may come to some harm. He did not take his car or mobile phone - he only has a bank card and a small amount of cash with him.
"I urge Matthew to get in touch - we simply need to know that you are safe and well."
