Brian Nunn left his family home in Abbey Road, Leiston on foot at approximately 10am on Friday, July 19 and has not yet returned, despite having medical conditions which require medication.

There have been several sightings of Mr Nunn, including dash cam footage in the Lover's Lane area of Leiston at around 3pm on the day of his disappearance - but he has still not been found.

Today police are returning to the Lover's Lane area to speak to drivers and distribute leaflets, as well as walk the route between different sighting locations in the hope they might be able to piece together his last known route.

Officers searching for him say they "remain extremely concerned for his welfare", particularly given the searing heatwave which will have made conditions outdoors very difficult.

Mr Nunn's wife and son have also made a desperate plea for him to return, with Janice Nunn, 74, saying: "It's worse when I wake up and I know it's another day wondering where he is, and if he's alive."
