Police say they are becoming increasingly concerned for a 33-year-old Hampshire man who has been missing for more than a week.

Ben Hilton, from Eastleigh, disappeared after attending a wedding reception in Winchester, on 8 June.

A friend saw him board the train at Winchester Railway Station at 21:16 BST and he was later seen on CCTV at Portsmouth's train station and harbour.

Hampshire Police are now appealing for information from the public.

Mr Hilton was last spotted on the staff side of the Wightlink catamaran jetty at Portsmouth Harbour at 22:18.

Det Insp Dave Morgan, from Hampshire Police, said: "We know there were some fishermen on the pontoon of the Gosport Ferry in Portsmouth Harbour at the time of the last confirmed sighting of Ben. We'd like to hear from these men.

"We have also had an unconfirmed sighting of Ben close to his home address on 10 June. If you saw him on that date, or since 9pm on 8 June we want to hear from you.

"We are keeping an open mind as to what has happened to Ben, but we urgently want to hear from anyone who has seen him or who has been in touch with him."
