POLICE are appealing for help searching for a missing Berkshire man whose car was spotted in Dorset earlier this week.

Richard Brockbank, 27, from Thatcham, was last seen at a petrol station in Newbury at 10pm on Monday (MAY 19). Officers believe he is in the Dorset area as his car, a black Ford Fiesta, has since been found in Wareham.

Chief Inspector Rob France said: “We are increasingly concerned for Richard's welfare as he hasn't been seen since Monday, neither has he been in contact with family and friends, which is very out of character for him.”

He is described as white, 5 feet 9 inches tall and of average build, with short black hair and a trimmed beard. He was last seen wearing a light green hooded top with a large logo on the front and dark jeans.

Contact Thames Valley Police with information on 101, quoting “URN 77 of 20/5”.
