Police are continuing to appeal for the public's help to trace a missing Whitley Bay man.
52-year-old Colin Morton was last seen by his partner on Christmas Eve morning when he left the house to go to the doctor's and to run a few errands in the town centre.
He has not made any contact with her since ten o'clock that morning.
Mr Morton’s partner Liz Callighan has appealed for him to get in touch.
“I just want to tell you that I love you and I need to know that you are safe.
Please can you get in touch with someone to let me know you are safe and well?”
