POLICE are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety and welfare of a man from north Essex who has not been seen for two months.

Jeremy Sparks had been renting a room in a flat in Middleton, south of Sudbury, and was last seen on Wednesday, July 4.

He was reported missing by his ex-wife on the evening of Wednesday, July 25 after she became concerned that he had not been in contact with either her or any of their children.

Mr Sparks also has a sister who lives in Sudbury and she has not heard from her brother either.

Investigating Officer, Sgt Pete Chivers, said: “This is completely out of character and in no way like the Jeremy everyone knows. He's never gone missing before and likes the quiet life.”
