Eddie is believed to have driven his car to South Wales or the Brecon Beacons.

He likes walking in the countryside and after conducting enquiries, we think he is somewhere in the area pictured.

This is a massive area for officers to conduct searches, so we’re urging the public to help us by looking out for him or his vehicle, which may be parked in a car park or layby.

We are growing increasingly concerned for Eddie’s welfare and are desperate for information which can lead us to his whereabouts.

– Insp Owen Hughes, Gloucestershire Constabulary

Anyone who sees Eddie or his Nissan Note is asked to call 101.
