The family of a Wiltshire man who's gone missing in the Highlands of Scotland are desperate to know what's happened to him.

Robin Garton hasn't been seen since he checked out of his hotel in Glencoe a week ago. He had arranged to meet friends on Sunday, but failed to turn up. His car has been found in a remote car park.

Will Garton Robin's son told ITV News not knowing what has happened to his dad is the worst thing:

Police in Wiltshire say they're concerned for the welfare of a young woman who's been missing for three days.

20-year-old Jade Sheppard was last seen in the Manor Gardens area of Warminster on Monday, and has not contacted her family since, which they say is out of character.

She did not turn up to her job as a cleaner on Tuesday, which is also said to be out of character for her. Her hair is now dyed white with pink and purple streaks.

Police officers are conducting enquiries in the local area.

"We are working closely with Jade's family who are extremely worried about her and just want to know she is safe. If Jade is aware of this appeal I would urge her to either contact her family or police on 101."

"We are concerned about Jade's welfare and I would like to hear from anyone who has seen her or has any information about her whereabouts."

Police have stopped looking for DJ Derek, say campaigners

The campaign group 'find DJ Derek' say his family have been told that the police have stopped looking for the missing Bristol DJ.

73-year-old Derek Morris has been missing for two months. In a statement posted on Facebook, the group say there has been a "shocking" lack of police support, and call on friends and supporters to help the search effort.

They say police have called off the search until there is further evidence.

"Dear friends and fans, the police have notified the family that they will no longer be looking for Derek.

So no further involvement from the police until there is further evidence, so I guess it's up to us to pull together and do their job for them.

The lack of police support is shocking and to leave his family in thin air is unfair and terribly insensitive to their pain.

We could do with all your help and suggestions please get in contact over the weekend and we will respond as soon as we can.

Thank you to all of you for your love and support."
