Police are becoming ‘increasingly concerned’ for the welfare of a 40-year-old man who went missing last week.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary has issued a renewed appeal to find Dean Tate who was last seen in the Somerset and Dorset pub in High Street, Burnham-on-Sea, at 10pm on Friday.
The force is asking people living in Burnham and Highbridge to check outbuildings and motorists to review dashcam footage to help with the search.
Detective Sergeant Grant Boyd said: “Dean’s disappearance is out of character and we’re increasingly concerned for his welfare.
“We’re very grateful to everyone who has already been in touch with information or who has shared our appeal to find Dean on social media.
“We continue to need the public’s help though and are now asking people in the area to check their sheds and garages in case Dean has sought shelter there.
“We’re also keen for motorists who may have driven through the Burnham and Highbridge areas between 10pm on Friday and this morning (Monday) to review their footage for signs of Dean.”
Police are using ‘significant resources’ to find Dean and are receiving help from the coastguard, RNLI, Avon Fire and Rescue and Devon and Cornwall Police.
Dean is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall, with short dark brown hair and brown eyes.
He was wearing a black T-shirt with badges on the arms, black jeans, Nike trainers and a Superdry jacket when last seen.
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and give reference number 5218042329.
