A missing Weston-super-Mare man has not been seen for more than a fortnight, prompting police to renew their appeal for anyone with information to come forward.

Police are growing increasingly concerned about the welfare of a man who has not been seen since for more than two weeks.

Patrick Gibbins, aged 49, has not been spotted since July 24.

While he lives in Weston, Avon and Somerset Constabulary say he could be anywhere in North Somerset.

A police spokesman said: “We’re concerned for his welfare and are keen for anyone who sees him or may be knows where he is, to contact us.

“He is a white man, about 5ft 6ins with dark brown short hair, bald on the top of the head. He also has a full beard.

“We do not have a description of what he was wearing when he went missing.

“Patrick has links with North Somerset and Bristol.

“We would like Patrick or anyone who knows of his whereabouts to call 101, quoting reference 5218167626.”
