Mr Conner’s family have appealed for anyone who might know where he is, or who may have seen him since he went missing, to contact them.

They said: “We are completely heartbroken and just want to find Dean.

“Please get in touch with the police if you can help.”

CCTV footage of Mr Conner shows that shortly before he went missing, he was wearing a black hooded top, black jogging bottoms and white trainers.

Chief inspector Jocelyn O’Conner said: “It is almost a month since Dean was last seen and his family is understandably increasingly concerned about him.

“I am asking people in the town, or who were visiting the area, to think back and see if they can remember anything that might help us to find him.

“Small pieces of information could help us to find out what has happened, so even if you think it is insignificant, please get in touch.

“In addition, I urge anyone who has seen Dean since he went missing or knows where he might be to call us.”
