Mr Hudson, who friends say is also affectionately known as Pinky Marvin, is described as up to 5ft 11ins (1.8m) tall, slim, with shoulder-length black hair and wears glasses.

It is believed he has wearing a black coat over an orange cardigan when he went missing.

He is originally from Birmingham and has a Midlands accent but has lived in Aberystwyth for about 10 years.

One of Mr Hudson's friends, Tom Payne, said: "Different people in small parties have been searching along the coastal path, the rivers and the beaches in Aberystwyth for Terry.

"He left his property on foot and did not take his keys or his phone and left his dog in the house."

He said Mr Hudson's friends and family were worried and had started a Facebook site to help in the search for him.
