Dean Cassell, 51 from Portsmouth, was last seen at around 3.30pm on September 26 in the Widley Court Drive area of Cosham.

Three days later he was reported missing, but he has not been seen or heard from since – which police say is ‘very out of character’ for him.

Officers have conducted a number of enquiries to try and locate him, but are now asking the public to report any sightings.
