The family of an 82-year-old man who has been missing for almost three weeks have described his disappearance as "very out of character".

Michael Asher, from Maidenhead in Berkshire, was last seen boarding a train to Poole, Dorset, on 31 March.

Police say they believe he has been using buses in Dorset, and the last unconfirmed sighting of him was at a Bournemouth soup kitchen.

Mr Asher's family urged him to get in touch.

Addressing him directly in a statement, his cousin Pat Goodsave said: "I'm just so worried about you and want to know where you are."

Mr Asher is described as slim, 6ft-tall and bald. He is known to dress smartly and also to wear a baseball cap.
