Durham Police say they are concerned for the welfare of a man from Stanley who has been missing for 'some time'.
Steven Matthison, 53, is classed as vulnerable due to a medical condition.
He may not have medication with him.
He is described as around 5' 8" tall, large build and is currently thought to have curly hair and a beard - unlike the most recent photograph which has been shared by the police.
He may also be wearing spectacles.
Anyone who knows where Steven is is urged to call Durham Police on 101.
Bradley Lowery is preparing to walk out onto the pitch at Wembley later today, fulfilling his dream of being England mascot. Earlier this week, the 5 year old was overjoyed to learn that his hero, Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe has been selected for the squad and will join him in the capital. Defoe himself has tweeted about Bradley's appearance. The player has visited Bradley in the past and spoken of how the little boy, who's fighting terminal cancer, is in his prayers every night.
