POLICE in Tewkesbury are appealing for information in connection with the disappearance of a man from the town.

James or 'Jimmy' Thompson, aged 39 and of Crouch Court, was last seen leaving for his workplace in Winchcombe at 6.30am last Friday but failed to arrive.

Officers believe Jimmy is experiencing a number of personal issues that may have prompted his disappearance and are urging him, or anyone who knows where he is, to make contact and help provide reassurance for the family.

Jimmy, who also has links to Cheltenham, is described as white, 6ft tall, of slim build and with brown/greying hair in a mohican.

When he was last seen he was wearing blue jeans, a grey lightweight jacket, work boots and a Billabong camouflage baseball cap.

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident 427 of July 26.
