INVESTIGATIONS are continuing into the case of missing Poole man Alan Allgood.

A large police search of Wareham Forest took place yesterday amid “grave concerns” for the safety of the 65-year-old, who was last seen dropping a friend off at work on Wallisdown Road at 12.50pm on Tuesday lunchtime.

A later text message, sent to this friend, indicated Mr Allgood – who suffers from the heart condition angina – was upset and may come to harm, Dorset Police say.

Mr Allgood has not been located so far.
