Have your say

Officers looking for a missing man have widened their search to the Port Solent area.

Surrey Police officers are searching for David Blair, from Camberley, as they are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Officers now believe he may have headed to a coastal area and have widened their search to the Port Solent area of Portsmouth and the Lyme Regis area of Dorset.

They are appealing to the public to assist them in their search and in particular, to look out for the distinctive green Vauxhall Corsa car which David drives, pictured.

The CCTV image of the car was taken at 9.52am on 17 September on the A31 at Wrecclesham and officers believe he was heading towards Hampshire at that time.

Detective Sergeant Emma Lefort from the Missing Persons Unit said: ‘David’s family believe he may have headed towards a coastal area and so we have widened our search to Port Solent and Lyme Regis to see if there have been any sightings of him. ‘We are particularly asking people to look out for his bright green car which is extremely distinctive. If you have seen this parked up in a beauty spot, hotel car park or other establishment then please contact us as a matter of urgency.’

David Blair, 46, was last seen on Wednesday ,September 17 by a family member. He has not been seen or heard from since.

Surrey Police said it is out of character for David not to return home or make contact with friends or family for this length of time and officers are urging anyone who has seen him to contact them with information.

David drives a green Vauxhall Corsa with the registration number LO62 OOH and anyone who has seen this vehicle is also asked to call police.

David is described as a white man, around 5ft 10ins in height, of slim build with short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a green t-shirt, blue denim jeans and boots.

Anyone who has seen David or who knows his whereabouts are urged to contact Surrey Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
