Insp Megan Heathershaw said: "We would appeal to anyone who has seen the vehicle described to get in touch with police as soon as possible.

"It is out of character for Robert to go missing and as time goes by we are increasingly concerned for him and want to trace him to ensure he is safe and well.

"I would urge anyone who is out in the area, whether that is hiking or dog walking, to please be vigilant to the appeal to trace Robert and if they see him or his vehicle contact police on 101."
