The 32-year-old, who has twins aged two with Charlie, said his disappearance was ‘out of character’ - especially as he has not been in touch to speak with the children.

No one has heard from Charlie - whose phone has been turned off - despite the appeal to find him being shared numerous times on social media.

Police have been contacted but have asked for more information on his sudden disappearance.

Georgia said: ‘No-one has seen or heard from Charlie since last Wednesday. It’s out of character as he would normally be in touch over the twins.

‘He lives with a man who said he last saw him on Wednesday morning. The bed has not been slept in since then. He only has the clothes on his back and his bank card.

‘He’s literally vanished. We’ve been sharing it on social media but no-one has heard anything. All his family and friends think it is weird.

‘His mum said he was a bit depressed a couple of weeks ago but he was perfectly fine when I saw him last Monday.’

Georgia said she has checked with hospitals and police stations - but no one has heard anything.

‘We’ve been in touch with police but they keep asking for more information,’ Georgia said. ‘If they checked his bank transactions then we would know where he is and if he is ok.’

She added: ‘He has gone off before but has always been in touch on those occasions.’

Amy Budd, Charlie’s sister, posted on Facebook: ‘Charlie still not been found. If anyone has seen my little brother Charlie Budd please could you let one of us know, just need to know he’s safe and ok so we can stop worrying.’

Anyone with information can contact Georgia, Amy or the police.
