The wife of a missing man from Pickering, Nicholas Harper, has issued a further appeal for information as to his whereabouts.

Mr Harper left his home on the morning of Thursday 7 February and was believed to be heading for work. However, he didn't arrive and his car was later found at Cowhouse Wood in Helmsley.

Rachel Harper, Mr Harper's wife, has now issued a fresh appeal saying that his family and friends "miss him desperately".

She said: "It has now been more than six weeks since Nick's disappearance, and his family and friends all miss him desperately.

"I appeal to anyone who thinks they have any information that might help us to find Nick, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, to please contact the police and help us find out what has happened to him."

Mr Harper is described as being white, around 5ft 5ins tall, of stocky build with short dark brown hair and a full beard.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen him is asked to contact police on 101.
