Police are increasingly concerned for the safety of Allan Atkinson, of Carlisle, who was last seen on Tuesday afternoon last week.

Hotels across the county have already been asked to check if he is staying with them.

And now police are appealing for people in Carlisle to carry out a search as well.

Sgt Ian Woods said: "We are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of Mr Atkinson.

"We're asking for people to check outbuildings, sheds and garages in the Carlisle area to see if there is any recent sign of activity.

“His wife and brother are worried about him and are hoping that he will make contact to let his family and friends know that he is safe and well.”

Mr Atkinson is described as 5ft 10in tall, of medium build with a ruddy complexion and short, light-brown hair.

When last seen, the 60-year-old retired British Gas engineer was wearing blue jeans and a grey jacket with a hood.

His wife Lynn, of Etterby, told the News & Star she has no idea where he is or why he vanished.

Anyone who has seen him or knows where he is, should call police on 101.
