Police are trying to trace a man from Torquay who's been missing since Saturday night.

39-year-old David Cauldwell, has not been seen since leaving the Artful Dodger pub in Torquay at around midnight on Saturday 21 May.

It is thought he may have travelled to a rave at Haldon Forest but no one appears to have seen him there.

As time goes on we are becoming more concerned for David’s safety. There is no indication that he has been a victim of crime but with no sightings of him and this being so out of character we really want to hear from anyone who has seen or spoken to David or perhaps has given him a lift somewhere.
