Concern is growing for the welfare of a Sussex man who has not returned from a walking holiday in Spain.

Robert Golden, 54, of Shoreham, flew to Seville on 5 November and was due to return two weeks later.

Police said he was a keen walker and talked about trekking to Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz and Jerez. He has not used his bank cards since 8 November.

His brother Barry Golden said: "I'm really worried. I'm really missing him and want to see him back home."

'Spain media appeal'

He added: "Robert loves walking and the outdoors. It is worrying that he can be away for that length of time and not use his bank cards.

"The last time was 8 November somewhere in Spain. I wonder what he is living on?

"I would appeal for him to get in touch."

Det Insp Rob Walker said: "We are getting increasingly concerned for Robert. He was seen by neighbours at the beginning of November leaving his home with a large backpack.

"He failed to return to work as expected and he was reported missing on 23 November. We are in liaison with the British Embassy and are issuing the appeal to the media in Spain.

"I would ask Robert to get in touch to say he is safe and well. I would also urge anyone who may recognise him from his travels in Spain to contact Sussex Police."
