A MAN believed to be in his late 60s to 70s hasn’t been seen for two days since taking his boat out.

HM Coastguard is appealing for anyone who might know the whereabouts of a man – called David – who took a Zapcat boat out from Newhaven, Sussex on Friday morning and hasn’t been seen since.

He is believed to have been possibly heading to Dieppe in France on the boat and is equipped with safety equipment and a full tank of fuel. Broadcast messages will be made across the area where David was known to be going and vessels are asked to look out for a blue-coloured Zapcat.

He has a Scottish accent, is around 5’ 9” and of very thin build. Anyone with information should call HM Coastguard on 02392 552100.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
