AN appeal has been launched to trace a 49-year-old Ipswich man who has been reported missing.

Michael Forsythe, of Downing Close, has not been seen since he left his house between 8am and 8.15am today.

He was reported missing at around 9.30am.

Although he has been missing before, it is unusual as he rarely leaves the house, police said.

Mr Forsythe is white, about 6ft, of slim to medium build, clean-shaven and with very long blond hair to the middle of his back which could be down or in a pony tail.

A police spokesman said: “It is important to trace Michael Forsythe and officers are asking him or anyone who sees him or knows of his whereabouts to contact the duty sergeant at Ipswich Police Station on 01473 613500 without delay.”
