Chief Inspector Danny Thompson, of Dorset Police, said: “We are continuing to do everything we can to locate Alex and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has come forward and provided information.

“I am now issuing images of the distinctive hooded jumper that Alex was wearing on Saturday 11 February in the hope that it will help the public remember any possible sightings.

“Our efforts are ongoing to piece together Alex’s movements and I would continue to ask anyone who has home CCTV or doorbell cameras, or was driving in the town centre with a dashcam fitted to their vehicle, to please check their footage for anything that may help us.

“I would like to make an urgent appeal for anyone with information, no matter how small, to please let us know as this may assist our investigation.

“Alex – if you see this appeal, please let either us or your family know that you are OK.

"We are all extremely worried for you and want to make sure you are safe and well.”
