Police have renewed their appeal to help find a missing man who could be in Cornwall.

Mark Smith was reported missing from the Portland area of Dorset on Monday (January 3).

Dorset Police received a report at around 1.30pm raising concerns over the welfare of the 33-year-old, after he failed to turn up for work as expected.

Officers believe he could have travelled to St Ives, and have issued new images of Mark in the hope that someone might have seen him.

Mark is described as white, 5ft 10in tall and of slim build, with short hair described as "mousey brown" in colour, and tattoos on his arms.

Inspector David Parr, of Dorset Police, said: “It is out of character for Mark not to make contact with family or friends for a number of days and we are continuing to carry out a number of enquiries in a bid to locate him.

“I want to renew our appeal for anyone with information relating to his whereabouts to please come forward and we are issuing new images of Mark in the hope that someone might have seen him since the afternoon of Monday January 3, 2022.

“Our enquiries indicate he may have travelled to the St Ives area of Cornwall and he also has links to Weston-super-Mare in Somerset and the Brecon Beacons area of Wales.

“I would again like to make a direct plea to Mark - if you see this, please make contact with us or your family as we all just want to ensure you are safe and well.”
