AN URGENT appeal has been put out for a man missing from his home in Ryde, who could be in the Portsmouth area.
Brian Proctor, 51, has not been seen since 10pm on Friday when he left his home in Sutton Close, Ryde.
He was last seen on camera leaving on the Fishbourne to Portsmouth car ferry at 1.40am Saturday morning.
Detective Inspector John Geden who is leading the search for Mr Proctor said:’We are genuinely concerned that Brian may wish to harm himself and we are doing everything we can to find him and ensure he is safe.
‘He has money enough to last him a couple of days, and we are today looking at CCTV sources to identify his path of travel. We are also checking hotels and bed and breakfasts in the Portsmouth area.
‘Hotel and B&B owners in Portsmouth and surrounding areas – please check your guest lists and if you have a lone man in his 50s who checked in and recognise his picture, please call us immediately.
‘Our message to the public is please take a good look at his photo, and if you think you see him or know where he is call us straight away.
‘Our message to Brian if he is reading this or hears our appeal is please make contact. Your wife is beside herself with worry. We just want to make sure you are safe. Please call us on 101 and we will do everything we can to help you.’
Mr Proctor is described as 6ft 1ins tall, balding with short grey hair at the sides, with large distinctive ears.
He was wearing a black T-shirt with white writing on it, blue jeans and black shoes. Anyone with information should call 101.
