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."
