‘However, we are clearly concerned that Dion appears to have had no contact with anyone since Thursday afternoon (April 17).

‘We are appealing directly to Dion for him to contact either police or his family just to let us know he is safe and well.

‘Anyone who has seen Dion since Thursday afternoon or knows his whereabouts is also asked to contact police by phoning 101. Mini-com users can call 18001 101.

‘Dion is known to have links in the Portsmouth, Havant, Waterlooville, Hayling Island and Kent areas.’

Police say Dion is 5 ft 8 ins to 5 ft 9 ins tall, of medium build and has blond hair and blue eyes.’

He was last seen wearing a blue Henry Lloyd jacket, brown Adidas trousers and a green baseball cap with ‘Fly’ written on it.
