A WOMAN has made an emotional appeal to her partner who has gone missing after becoming “bewildered and confused” following a car crash.
Mick Martin, 45, was injured and badly shaken up after a crash on the A120 to Harwich on January 18 while he was on his way to his factory supervisor job.
His partner, Amanda Westaway, said he has not been sleeping and had flashbacks since the crash.
On Monday this week, Mr Martin left the couple's home in Wilson Marriage Road, Colchester, in a red Citroen car he has borrowed since his accident and has not been seen since.
He has sent several text messages to Ms Westaway, which an Essex Police spokesman said had raised concerns for his welfare.

In one of the text messages he said he was in the New Forest, where the couple had spent a long weekend last spring.
Hampshire Police carried out a search of the New Forest and found the red Citroen abandoned along a track with signs of damage.
Sniffer dogs picked up a trail from the car to a nearby road and the Dorset police joined in the search, but no trace was found of Mr Martin.
It is believed the father-of-one may be in the Christchurch or Bournemouth areas.
Ms Westaway said: “Martin has been confused and in a bewildered state of mind since the crash and he has been very emotional.
“I want to tell him that I love him and want him and ask him to contact me to let me know that he's safe and well.”
Mr Martin is described as white, 6ft tall, medium build, with short dark hair and a moustache. His ears are pierced and his left earlobe is split in three places. He has tattoos of “Jasmine” and “Indian” on his left arm.
He took no spare clothes with him and was wearing a brown corduroy top and jeans when he was last seen.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Colchester police on 01206 762212 or their local police station.
