Police are hoping the public can help trace Paul Smith, who has gone missing from Ventnor on the Isle of Wight.

The 58-year-old was last seen in the Parkhurst area of Newport on Saturday 22 March 2014.

He is described as white, stocky build, ginger hair and freckles.

He is believed to be wearing a beige top, blue jeans and boots.

PC Lucinda Critchlow said: "We are concerned for Paul's welfare, if you have seen him or know where he is please contact me as soon as possible.”

It is thought that Paul may have travelled out of Hampshire, possibly Devon or Cornwall areas.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Hampshire Police on 101 quoting ref 44140105776.
