Police have today (Sunday) released a new CCTV image of missing Weston-super-Mare man which show the clothes he was wearing when he was last seen more than a week ago.

The Mercury reported on Friday Deakon Wilkins, aged 24, has been missing since last Saturday (January 14) and his family have issued a desperate appeal to locate his whereabouts.

He was last seen at around 4.30am on that day leaving Motion, in Avon Street, Bristol and police are hoping the additional image may help jog someone’s memory.

He is described as white, of medium build, approximately 5ft 10ins tall, with ginger hair and has a tattoo between his neck and chest of the word ‘rush’.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary inspector Jason Shears said: “We’re using a significant number of resources in our search for Deakon and have already issued a number of photographs as part of our appeal for help in finding him.

“We now hope the CCTV image showing the clothes he was wearing when he was last seen might jog someone’s memory.

“If you were in Motion or the surrounding area last Friday night or Saturday morning and remember seeing someone dressed in a red fitted jumper, black blazer, dark jeans and red trainers then please, I urge you to get in touch.

“Deakon’s disappearance is out of character and we’re increasingly concerned for his welfare.”

Anyone who sees Deakon should call 999 and provide the call handler with the reference 5217012724.

If you have any information about his whereabouts should call 101 quoting the same reference.
