The alarm was raised when he failed to return later that day.

He is slim, 5ft 10in tall with short dark hair. When last seen Ross was wearing a grey hooded top, jeans and white running shoes.

He was carrying a rucksack containing a wax-effect jacket.

Ross is fit and used to walking long distances but sometimes suffers from depression.
