Fears are growing for the safety of a 39-year-old man who has been missing for more than a fortnight.
Darren Siggins was last seen at his home in King’s Lynn, on December 22. His family spoke to him briefly by telephone on December 27.
Last night Mr Siggins’s brother Terry, 41, who lives in London, said: “The last time we spoke to him he was very down. He was saying he wanted to leave the house where he lives in King’s Lynn.
“He was very low and withdrawn over the past few weeks and we have not heard from him and are very concerned.”
Police have visited Mr Siggins’s address in North Lynn. Officers found his mobile phone and the medication he must take every two weeks.
Terry Sigggins said without it, he feared his missing brother would become lethargic and depressed and fail to eat or care for himself.
“He knows he has to have medication,” he added. “But like a lot of people who have mental health conditions, he doesn’t accept it.”
Mr Siggins rarely left his home. When he went out, he would either visit a nearby park or travel to Hunstanton with his mother, Brenda, who lives at Friday Bridge, near Wisbech.
Mr Siggins is 5ft 8ins and slim, with short mousy-brown hair. When last seen he was wearing a short dark jacket, white trainers and either tracksuit bottoms or jeans.
A police spokesman said enquiries into Mr Siggins’s whereabouts were “ongoing” and anyone with information should call King’s Lynn police on 101.
