Seven hours since his disappearance, WILSAR have been seen searching the hospital grounds, as well as the side of the A419 near to Commonhead roundabout (pictured).

“He was wearing a pea-green t-shirt, black shorts with white stripes on and trainers. He is described as a large build with blond hair and blue eyes”, police say.

Inspector Mark Thompson said: “We would ask anyone who sees Mark to contact us via 999. His family and friends are very worried about him and I would urge him to get in touch immediately. We don’t believe that Mark has his mobile phone with him so may not be able to phone for help.”
