"I just want to say to him to come back and if he can't, to let his mum know he's OK.

"We can't understand why he has gone but also why he hasn't contacted her because they are so close."

Ben was last seen leaving JD Weatherspoons in Bridgwater and getting into his red Nissan Micra just after 2.15am on November 17.

He is described as a white man, 5ft 7ins tall with short, dark brown hair, a goatee beard and a tattoo on his right forearm of a cross with flames coming out of it. He was last seen wearing jeans and a light coloured shirt.
