Police are appealing for help to trace a missing man from Lowestoft.

Mark Butler, 44, was last seen in the London Road area of Pakefield, near to Pontins Holiday Centre, at 6.15pm on Sunday, December 16.

He was reported as missing to police just before midnight.

Mr Butler is described as 5ft 9in, of stocky build and was wearing a thin security jacket, black trousers and black shoes.

It is thought he could be riding a red Harley Davidson, registration LK04 TKD, or driving a blue Hyundai Getz, registration AR07 JTV.

A police spokesman added: “Enquiries are ongoing to locate Mark and anyone who has seen Mark, knows of his whereabouts or has seen a man matching the description should contact Suffolk police on 101.”
