Jersey Police say they are "increasingly concerned" for the welfare of a 58-year-old man who has gone missing.

Adam Daniel McGrath was last seen at his home in Rue Du Maupertuis, St Clement.

He was heard leaving the house at 5:30am on Monday 13 May, which officers describe as "unusual".

They believe Adam initially drove towards Gorey in his family car, a white Ford Fiesta Zetec, that was eventually found parked at Grosnez Castle in St Ouen late Monday afternoon.

Police are appealing for information from anyone who may have seen Adam or the car.

Residents close to Grosnez are asked to check their gardens, outbuildings, doorbell cameras and dashcams.

He is described as a white man with white hair, around 5ft 9in tall and of broad build.

Adam is believed to be wearing a black or navy short-sleeved top, dark grey or black wide legged tracksuit bottoms - possibly branded Lonsdale or Adidas - and black Skechers shoes.
