Police are trying to locate a man from Newcastle who has been missing since January.
Raymond French, 52, from Keith Close, has not been seen since January 2 when he left home, telling family he was going down south to see friends as he had done regularly in the past.
Since then, his family have not heard from him and are unable to reach him on his phone. They then reported him missing to police on April 2.
Raymond is 5ft 11ins tall and of large build. He has links to the Devon and Cornwall areas and officers are carrying out enquiries to try and locate him.
Police are appealing for Raymond, or anyone who knows where he is, to contact them on 101.
