Officers are appealing for help from the public to find a Lyme Regis man who has gone missing.
Derek Richard Powell, 45, was last seen at his home in Anning Road at around 8.30am, March 20.
He was known to be upset at the time and officers are becoming increasingly concerned for Derek’s welfare.
Derek is around five feet four inches tall, with short brown hair and stubble and of stocky build.
He has tattoos on his wrist and upper arm.
Derek’s vehicle, a red Citroen Berlingo van, was found this morning in a lay-by in the Monkton Wyld area and officers have been conducting a search of nearby woodland, assisted by the NPAS helicopter.
Officers are currently searching the area near to where Derek’s car was found.
I would request that anyone who has seen Derek or a man matching the description given contacts Dorset Police urgently.
Also, if Derek sees this appeal I would request that he please contacts us as we are worried about him and would like to make sure he is safe.
