Police investigating the disappearance of a North Cotes man has released CCTV from the day he went missing.

John Carl Davis was last seen on January 29 on Bethlehem Street in Grimsby, close to Freshney Place Shopping Centre.

Now Humberside Police believes that a CCTV camera caught John from behind on the day he went missing at around 5.45pm.

There was an additional sighting of John the same evening near the war memorial in Holton le Clay at around 9pm.

Since then, there haven’t been any more sightings and police are becoming “extremely concerned” for John’s safety.

They have worked with Lincolnshire Police to try and find John with a police drone and search dogs.

As previously reported, Lincolnshire Police found John’s car in the Hartwell Ford area of Grimsby on Friday, January 31.

Inspector Ian Dalby said: “John is 5ft 10ins tall, of a heavy build and with long fair/ginger hair.

“When he was last seen he was wearing dark blue jeans, black slip-on shoes and a high-vis jacket. He may also be wearing glasses.”

Anyone with information has been urged to call 101 and quote incident 175 of January 30.
