Norfolk Police asked people in Sheringham to check sheds and outbuildings for Norman Carter who has been missing since Tuesday, 23 May.

They said officers had carried out house-to-house inquiries, checked CCTV footage, investigated all reported sightings and searched with police dogs and drone units.

The searches are now being extended to cover a wider area around Sheringham, and the coastguard has also been called in to help.

The CCTV shows the last known sighting of Mr Carter.

He was last seen walking along Cromer Road, between Jubilee Drive and Beeston Common, towards West Runton at around 5pm on 23 May.

Prior to that, he had been seen leaving Tesco in Sheringham at about 4.40pm.

"As part of this ongoing search, I am urging anybody who lives in Sheringham to please check any sheds or outbuildings on their property as well as their gardens and contact us immediately if they have any information that could us help us find him."
