Sergeant Neil Traynor said: “As time passes, we are becoming increasingly concerned for Joel’s safety and wellbeing.

“He has been dealing with some anxiety issues lately and despite a number of searches and enquiries to trace him, we have not yet been able to locate him.

“He is known to travel by public transport and likes to visit Glasgow and Edinburgh, and we are liaising with our colleagues in these areas too in case he has travelled there.

“I would urge anyone who has seen Joel since Wednesday to contact us, or indeed Joel himself to get in touch to let us know that he is safe and well.”
