POLICE appealing for help to trace a missing man have warned the public not to approach him because "his behaviour may be unpredictable".

Lee Hepburn was said to be very upset when he left an address in Anchor Road in Kinson, Bournemouth following a disturbance just before 8.30pm last night.

Lee, 32, is described as white, six feet two inches tall and of medium build with a bald head. He has a tattoo sleeve on his left arm. He is believed to be wearing a white T-shirt and grey shorts and was reportedly seen carrying a Tesco bag for life.

Lee may be on a green Yamaha motorcycle.

Chief Inspector Lindsay Dudfield, of Dorset Police, said: “Lee was reported to be very upset when he left the Anchor Road address so we are keen to locate him as soon as possible to ensure he is all right and are carrying out searches in the area.

“I would like to hear from anyone who has information as to Lee’s whereabouts or who sees a man matching the description given. Due to Lee’s emotional state his behaviour may be unpredictable so I would urge members of the public not to approach him but to report any sightings to police immediately.

“Finally, I would make a plea to Lee if you see this to please contact us or your family and let us know where you are so we can make sure you are safe.”
