The Leiston man, who has dementia, left the family home on foot at about 10am on Friday, July 19, and has not yet returned.

Police and family members are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of Mr Nunn, who has medical conditions that need medication.

On Friday, officers carried out anniversary checks.

Earlier this week his wife and son made a desperate plea for help in finding him, saying they are "starting to lose hope".
