DI Brown said: “We are becoming increasingly concerned about Neil’s whereabouts as this kind of behaviour is completely out of character for him. Officers are doing all they can to trace Neil and we have released CCTV pictures of someone we believe is Neil outside the public house at around the time we believe Neil left the premises.

“I would urge anyone who can help trace Neil to contact the police urgently to enable us to make sure he is safe and well.”

Neil, a 37-year-old from Town Bridge Mill, who suffers from mild learning difficulties, was reported missing by neighbours who had not seen him since December 31 2013.

He lives alone has also failed to attend work at Morrison’s in the town.

Neil is described as white, 5’2” to 5’5”, with a small/slim build, short ginger hair and a pale complexion. He was last seen wearing a dark anorak style jacket with a hood, a dark top and jeans.

Anyone who has seen Neil or has information about his whereabouts should contact Bedfordshire Police on 101.
