It is understood he visited the Stanbrook Abbey Hotel in Malvern, where at 7pm he was seen walking off in a south-westerly direction.

Despite numerous press and television appeals from his family – as well as at least four reported sightings – there are no clues where Matthew is. 

And as previously reported, Matthew’s parents Mike and Karen, from Widley, said his disappearance had brought them ‘heartache’

Police officers from Portsmouth re-shared the West Mercia police appeal to find him on Twitter just before 10am this morning. 

They said: ‘Can you help our colleagues in West Mercia Police find missing Matthew Bone?

‘He is originally from #Portsmouth so we're asking people in Pompey to share this appeal.’ 

Matthew is described as being white, around 5ft 7in tall, of slim build, with brown hair and bluey/grey coloured eyes.

It is not known what he was wearing at the time of his disappearance.

Anyone who sees Matthew or has any information about his whereabouts is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 410S of March 11, 2018.
