Detective Sergeant Julie Dransfield, of Bournemouth CID, said: “I understand that Brian was upset before his disappearance and due to the time that has lapsed since he was last seen we are very concerned for his welfare.

We have information that Brian booked a plane ticket to Spain for the middle of January but did not turn up for his flight. It is important that Brian, or anyone who knows of his whereabouts, comes forward as soon as possible.”
